J. Anthony Brown Explains Why He Quit
J. Anthony Brown is throwing up the deuces to the popular Tom Joyner Morning Show. He shared his announcement on social media, saying he was not allowed to share his final farewell on-air. See the clips.
After more than 20-year run on the nationally-syndicated radio show, the funnyman thanked fans and listeners.
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. 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.
In a separate interview, he shared,
It was not a salary dispute. It was based on me wanting to venture out and have my own weekend show. That’s it. We couldn’t come to terms. It was just time for me to leave… Sometimes people just disagree and part ways. That’s just what happened.
