‘Opie & Anthony’ dumped by WYSP
By Michael Klein
INQUIRER STAFF WRITER
WYSP (94.1) today parted ways with Opie & Anthony, its syndicated morning show.
WYSP, which last month announced it would return to rock, will play music in morning drive tomorrow and for the foreseeable future, said its general manager, David Yadragoff.
Since April 2006, the freewheeling, New York-based personalities aired on WYSP and as many as 11 Infinity/CBS stations in a unique partnership with XM Satellite Radio.
Greg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia replaced the ratings-deprived David Lee Roth, who lasted only four months. Roth, the rocker-cum-pundit, had the unenviable task of following ratings juggernaut Howard Stern when Stern left for Sirius Satellite Radio in late 2005.
WYSP was alone today in jettisoning O&A, whose ratings have been tepid among listeners ages 18 to 34; in September, the show had actually risen - into 10th place.
Six other CBS stations now air O&A, said a CBS spokeswoman, who added that she had no announcements about the other stations' plans.
Kidd Chris, the station's afternoon host, is one of several candidates for the morning show, Yadragoff said.
Robert Eatman, O&A's manager, did not immediately return a call for comment.
In 2002, O&A created a stink during their first tour of duty with CBS Radio when they broadcast audio of a couple supposedly having sex in New York's St. Patrick's Cathedral. The pair were pulled off the air after the Federal Communications Commission accused them of indecency and threatened fines.
XM hired them in October 2004, and they thrived in the unbowdlerized world of satellite radio.
When XM offered to share them with CBS 18 months ago, the two were hailed as saviors.
"Oddly enough, our goal a few years ago was just to get work," Cumia told the Associated Press in 2006. "We wanted to get a job."

After today's rant, I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled the plug.
I have a feeling they already know that WYSP is pulling them off the air soon anyway.
I still get nothing.
You are experiencing technical difficulty, the Tech Team has been automagically notified and will resolve any problems that may exist.

Cant wait to hear what they have to say tommorow
Opie said this on todays show "If we are gone in Philly it will be temporary"
perhaps more then that gentlemen!
Damn, I listen to them on XM.... so.... this means.. ummm...
nothing to me.
Fuck WYSP, fuck Philly, fuck a set of twins with huge tits and tiny bellies
Just wrote to express my future lack of support for the station
Thats crazy, I'm still getting nothing. Is my internet on delay?
has kidd chris said anything about this yet? wonder if he is showing his true colors now?
xm listener in the philadelphia market, so i'm ok with it
still sucks overall
The fact that I can't get 923krock.com to load up worries me more than them being off on WYSP.
If they are off in new york, this whole FM thing is over.
I think this calls for a sticky!
I never ever like him.. I really gave his show a chance. Just that big fake loud laugh anytime anyone says something thats suppose to be funny. Thats the way he tells his listeners "Thats the funny, its was just brought."
their still on krock
It still coming up fine for me, with O&A.
I sure if the boys were off all FM radio it would be the lead headline at the drudge report, he's always sucked Hoo Hoo's balls.
