  1. IT’S TIME FOR SOME NEW TALENT.
    THE SHOW IS BORING, IT’S THE SAME STUFF EVERYDAY.
    IF YOU BRING SOME FRESH TALENT IN, YOU MAY GET SOME
    NEW LISTENERS.
    JAY IS PROBABLY SICK AND TIRED OF SYBIL EMBARRASSING HIM
    ON THE SHOW. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT SHE IS EDUCATED.SHE LIKES
    TO MAKE HIM FEEL SMALL.
    IT’S TIME FOR HER TO GO AND WORK WITH TAVIS.

    • One thing I know is that the show is not boring, as well as funny its informative and challenging it inspires me as well as other individuals to contribute to their (the show) core values “Party with a purpose” and as for “J” and Sybil that gag has been running since day one…….and believe me they know how to run a gag which this might as well be, so one thing for sure we will do one thing…………Stay tuned!!

      • I agree. They are informative, professional and hilarious unlike a few of the other radio stations. (I’m not going to mention names). I pray for them and the show.

      • Wow, we should be supporting each other. There are enough of other people dissing we as a people without our help. I’m glad you can still get the TJM Show, because we don’t get any of the syndicated Black Radio shows in our area any more, because the racist town I live in, in the CNY area were cancelled in our area. Not because they weren’t popular, but for the simple fact that show like the TJM Show, The Michael Baisden show, and there was one other popular Black Radio show on, but they all got cancelled because they were keeping the black community informed about what was going on in the black community around the country, because the less informed we are, the more complacent we become, and not cause trouble like they feel the Black Lives Matter protesters are doing. So I stopped listening to the radio completely since they removed all the black radio stations from us receiving them in my area. But they forget that we are not stupid people, they forget, we can still hear the programs via the internet. A lot more black homes have computers and access to the internet than what the media is reporting, so they are not keeping us from being informed, like we were when the TJM show, and I think Michael Baisden show is how the black community learned about the Jena 6 boys from Jena, Louisiana. So don’t knock these black radio shows, because we may not appreciate the music, or their side kicks are permanent guests on the show, buts more important is that we stay informed. Be blessed.

    • Writing in all capital letters suggest you are shouting. If you use all caps, widen the space between your words so they are legible.

    • That show is anything but boring! In my eyes, it’s the best show out there. Been listening to them for years!! Still a fan! They crack jokes, but no they don’t act just plain silly. And I’m glad that they don’t. They discuss real issues and professionally cover the news each morning. Tom, J, and Sybil make a great team. Can’t replace neither one of those three. If the team breaks up, I’m out.

    • Yes. I agree. She has a nasty habit of always trying to correct not only J. Anthony Brown, but Tom too at times. Yes, by now everyone who listens to this show knows she’s educated, and I’m all for people being educated, but it’s like she just takes it too far. Things sometimes said incorrectly that were meant to be funny, she just spoils it with her “correctness”. I stopped listening to the show because of her. She’s too fake for me and it really comes through every time she opens her mouth or starts with that fake laugh. Yes, maybe she needs to go be with Tavis or somebody that’s on her “level”.

  2. Sometime its just time for a change. Sometime people think every thing is a joke. He may feel disrespected .
    Or he might just be tired .
    Mr . Jay Anthony Brown sometimes you need change . Just know your fans love you.

  3. Jay was and is a great comedian. He rolls with the remarks that are said and does a hell of a job at it. If he leaves, he will be missed. We all know everything comes to an end. This may be Jays swan song. Hope they can work ths out. The cast has an amazing chemistry.

  4. Actually J Anthony Brown is not that funny anyway on the show. Everytime a guest is talking he rudely cuts them off especially on serious subject matter. Let him go.

  5. J Anthony Brown is not that funny on the show anyway. He is truly annoying when a guest is speaking on serious subject matter and he is constantly cutting the guest off. He is flat out rude and drives me crazy.

  6. It’s all in good fun if he’s not having fun anymore more then later because a comedian not having fun can not be funny.

  7. Good for him the whole show needs to be revamped after awhile you get sick of the same voices especially the one in the middle
