The funnyman – via social media, in his own words, says he was not permitted the opportunity to say goodbye over the air.
“I want to thank all the listeners and fans for embracing me for more than 20 years on the Tom Joyner Morning Show,” said Brown. “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.”
J. Anthony Brown had more on this mind. He also shared this:
“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.”
