Radio Facts received word today that J. Anthony Brown is leaving the Tom Joyner show. Back in January of this year Brown walked off the show as reported in Radio Facts then returned. Almost a year later he is leaving again. No doubt it’s a contract dispute. See info below.

(LOS ANGELES) — After a more than 20-year run on the nationally-syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS), funnyman J. Anthony Brown is leaving the show. His comedic take on social issues and pop culture has been a staple for radio listeners in more than 100 markets across the country.


“I want to thank all the listeners and fans for embracing me for more than 20 years on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. You were a captive audience, and your support and feedback encouraged me to be a better comic and a better social commentator, reflecting the world around us,” said Brown. “I am eternally grateful to Tom Joyner and the morning crew for the years of friendship and laughs, in sickness and in health. I thank you for the opportunity to showcase my talents, and allowing me to have a voice on morning radio.”

Brown is one of the forerunners to today’s popular Black comedy scene. His departure leaves behind a legacy of comedic skits, parodies, and “murdered hits,” addressing hot topics, making headline news. Plus, listeners will certainly miss his trademark catcall:  “Watch Out Deh Now!” See J. Anthony Brown’s Video Resignation HERE.

  1. The Tom Joyner show will be nothing without J Anthony Brown. He made the show. I have been a listener for many years but I will not listen anymore. J made the show and no one will be able to replace him….so long J good luck!

  2. Sorry to see Jay Anthony Brown go but he is not the reason that I listen to the Tom Joyner Morning Show I like the fact that Tom addresses issues that concern the black community

  3. We will miss Jay,he was very funny.I love all the morning show host.Maybe it’s time he gets his own Raido show.I will continue to listen to you all.Jay will be missed.Hope something can be worked out soon.UNITED WE STAND.Love to you all.

    • I agree. I stopped listening because of that. There would be a serious conversation on the table and JAB would try to throw in a joke, or he would interrupt the guest. He was not that funny at all.

  4. I really don’t understand why the show, or even Tom, could issue some type of good bye. Unless there was some type of internal issue, Tom at least should have said something like wishing him good luck and he will be missed, or something. Oh well, I’ll still give the show a shot because I didn’t just listen due to JAB, he was just an added pleasure. I may be listening to Steve Harvey a bit more though…..

    Good luck J. Anthony Brown, you will really be missed (especially your murdered hits!!)

  5. Jay say it ain’t so. I love tms. I listen because of Jay Tom and my girl sibil. I listen because they keep me informed on current events all while putting. A smile on my face. This trio gels well together. I wish Jay nothing but the best on his new journey.
