Steve Harvey Talks About Replacing Tom Joyner on Chicago Radio

"Tom Joyner is a radio legend, so I don't blame his fans for being upset about his leaving. But here's the deal: I spoke to Tom about it in depth as friends and as men; he knows I had nothing to do with this. I was told on Friday that it "might" happen and I was out on Monday and didn't think anything more about it. Tom found out on Monday. On Monday, I get a call from my manager saying we are leaving WGCI to go to V103, which are both owned by Clear Channel. I say, "That's Tom's station," and he simply tells me that Tom's leaving."

I like Steve...I wish He would stop Bashing Men every Fucking Chance He gets. He done did all his dirt throughout His life and now He preaching this and that. I mean He telling Women over the radio all the secrets we Men never let Women in on. It's like He's a traitor. Plus He married to a Gold Diggin tramp who was Married to a drug dealer.

I cain't stand this horse mouf muthafugga and why anyone finds him funny is TOTALLY lost on me. Tom Joyner's show did suck azz, though, but I would gladly take him over Mr. Ed any day of the week.

Steve Harvey took a Radio show.. boy if I hear that one more morning. He is not the most charismatic man is he? instead of a wallet he keep a shovel in his back pocket to dig a ditch for any and everybody in his way. What he did to his po ex wife Mary, SMH, Not feeling this muscle head look either kinda miss his lace fronts if he doing radio why do we have to see him?

i'll bet steve had everything to do with it. just like he didn't have nothing to do with it, when he tried to steal bernie mac deal.

Hopefully, Michael Baisden will stomp out all-knowing Steve Harvey.

From what I heard, his book is really what mothers should tell their daughters about men and relationships. Not all are bad but watch who you let into your life.

And who should know but the perfect example (s.harvey) of what not to let into ones life.

malika the m.i.l.f. said...

i would NEVER listen to steve harvey instead of tom joyner. and steve harvey isn't nearly as informative.

where's my stimulus? said...

...so does this mean Steve won't be invited on Tom's cruise?!

Hollywood Blackout said...

I can't stand this country ass negro.

But I didn't like Tom either so WOMP WOMP!

Black radio is dead.

@Sara from 12.20p

Amen! Him and that Strawberry #23 (Brothers Johnson should stop him from using that song, btw) segment got on my damn nerves!

bogart4017 said...

I don't even wanna hear it...similar sh*t went down with him and bernie mack a few years back. Coincidence? Only his hairdresser knows for sure....

Ricky Smiley's show got it on lock. PERIOD. Chaka-Khan?

t-rex said...

Whatever Steve. You never came clean about knifing MAC in the back over the Ocean's 11 movie. MAC was hurt. Your show is a joke. I hope you make enough money from your book to pay your ex-wife what she is entitled to since you stiffed her when you divorces her and married the drug dealers wife. All those steroid Lee Haney fed to you must be affecting your clarity. You are last person to be giving advice.

Funny our ass was away from the office Monday when the new broke...

Wild Safari said...

Steve is full of shyt. He knew about the deal. He probably pushed for it to happen in the first place. Anyone he calls "friend" should watch their back. He loves to bury his flatware there.

I bet that moustach is a weave, too.

malika the m.i.l.f. said...

i can't stand rickey smiley's show. i get so tired of folks thinking that tired fart jokes are funny. they never talk about any thing of interest on the show. i loved tom joyners show for his informative callers.

Dee Truth said...

With all due respect, Steve Harvey's "advice"is basically common sense that FATHERS ARE SUPPOSED TO TEACH THEIR DAUGHTERS .

Frankly, I wouldn't trust this bama to tell me the time of day.

The latest charge that Harvey made moves against the Tom Joyner's show just feeds the perception of his pattern of sheisty, cut-throat behavior.


The good news is that people who operate like this usually end up messing over the wrong person or playing themselves.

So just sit tight.

Sadiqua P said...

@Dee Truth

very true...what fathers are supposed to teach their daughters...but how many girls have a man around to teach them anymore?

Wild Safari said...

Tom's show is geared more towards our parents' generation. That's cool. It's good clean fun. I like the Doug Banks morning show myself. He's still older (late 30's early 40's?) but tries to keep it hip for the 20-40's crowd. I've never caught Ricky Smiley's show. His standup gets a chuckle from me every now and then, but I don't think I could listen to him every day.

Steve Harvey isn't really funny and I can't stand his personality so I actively avoided his show. Bernie Mac and Cedric were the funniest ones on the Kings of Comedy.

I can tolerate Russ Parr better than I can tolerate Steve Harvey most of the time. I like to hear Russ Parr and Armstrong Williams go at it for about a good 10 minutes.

..anybody else on this post have a NY TIMES #1 best selling book?!

(cricket noises)

good night.....

ThatsMyOpinion said...

That is wrong with people. People support Amy Winehouse, it still doesn't change the fact that she's a drug addict.

Success does not equate a good human being. So what if Steve is successful and rich.

I would rather have the respect of my peers and those around me than the reputation of stabbing people in the back.

I guess for you anonymous money is more important than integrity.

kimmikimkim said...

What happened was, Steve threatened to bite Tom with those big ass TEEF. So Tom said, "I'm outta here!"

Bee Gee said...

It's cool, Steve. We know how you do, homie (wink).

where's my stimulus? said...

...I wanna know who Amy Winehouse IS before I support her....

I don't have Steve's book and probably never will, but saw it sitting on a stand practically in the front doors of 2 different bookstores last week. I also noticed someone recently reading it on a transit bus, looking like she was really enjoying it. Steve and his book were featured on ABC's "Nightline" last week (same network as Oprah's show), so I guess it's not doing too bad. At least people know he has a book.

Montel Williams started his radio show last week. Mixed reviews.

Russ Parr has a film on DVD that he directed titled "The Last Stand", with Anthony Anderson and others, in stores now. I haven't seen a trailer or review on it yet. I hope it at least breaks even, because film making cost money.

The Bamma Steve Harvey is a big phony and that coon Michael"I love the white folks"Baisden is nother Uncle Tom playing on our people along with punk George.

Anonymous said...

Steve "Pass The Grits"Harvey has that radio show so he pack those little arenas and get his tickets sell up.This bamma has nothing informative to say on issues but he has alot to say on those stupid Strawberry Letters that they might write themselves{my opinion}can't nobody be that damn stupid.

Anonymous said...

That Coon Michael Baisden is fake just like that other Coon Steve Harvey.This dude Baisden claim that his show is for all races and didn't this Coon build his show off the backs of black urban radio,of course he did.How in the hell can you kick black people to the curb after you was so black during the Jena Six so call march.This nigga and Steve are on these air weaves to hustle dollars and Biasden need more serious topics to talk about other than relationship shit.

Anonymous said...

Baisden and George are no good for black radio and since they love white folks so much better,then they should go work for them.Black women these bammas have no respect for you,so stop kissing up to these color boys.

Anonymous said...

Black radio is not radio any more .The Steve Harveys and The Michael Biasdens do not reflect blackness on they're shows and they're only the about the business of money,not black people.

I'm Puerto Rican and I live in NYC, I've been listen to Urban Radio for over 25 years. Some of you guys sound very racial. Because Michael accept people of all races that makes him a coon. You should appreciate that people from other culture love your culture. More white kids from the suburds listen to rap musich then urban kids.

Michael's show started on KISS FM in NYC before he went national. There are plenty of latinos and other races who've bee listening to KISS FM for years. I'm old school and I remember back in the '70 must urban stations did play white music (KC and the Sushine Band, Tina Marie, etc.)

In order to love black people Michael has to hate white people. That sound real racial to me.

Fuck Michael"I love all the white folks" Baisden and his sissy ass show for punks.Punk made it off the back of black people now he turn his back on us,fuck this coon ass nigga.

Tom"Bamma of the week" J.,Steve"Pass The Grits" H.,Michael"I love white folks better"B,Rickey The Girly Man" S. Russ"Nast as I want to be" P. and other local black fools are killing the little that left of so call black radio.Rickey and his coons are not funny,George "Not so funny" W. is weak with no talent,Tommy crank calls are too stupid,lack talent too.Since Michael don't want to use the term black radio,maybe he should run over to them white folks love so much more and stay with them,that's if they want his coon ass.Thus dude love white people and he's not scared to say it out loud.

Anonymous said...

This goes out to the Puerto Rican dude from NYC. I agree with you totally. Black people will not appreciate the fact that other cultures, especially whites listen to their music, because they look at it as crackers stealing their shit.

No,it's ok for any race of people to listen to our black shows,but the problem is with the black host like Baisden begging them to listen to their shows.Where is dude at on other black issues with the passion he claim he had for Jenna six.Some people think this guy did that for ratings and he even call it our modern day civil rights movement.Biasden was of the reasons that black radio is dying ,and I'll give him a little credit,he bring serious stuff up for a little while but he spend more time on sex fun and foolishness.The Earthquake,he did a good thing by going to Florida to do his thing,but the rest of that show went back to stupid level.White have all the stations around the world,they don't need a sambo trying to speak for them and if white people choose to listen to black radio on their own,that's but to pimp your self out to keep to listen,that selling out Sambo.

It's alright for other races to listen to our black radio but don't beg them to listen like that Book Author Host has been and slide kick clown.Black radio need to deal with our issues and stop talking about dumb topics over the radio.
