    Can`t be a coincidence that for the 2nd day,best of O and A is without Anthony. I don`t expect to hear segments with him to be on the channel.Next monday,my guess is the channel name will change. Quite sad,since the best ofs without him are heavy on fillins like Ron Bennington,Bobby Kelly,Roland etc. Those guys can`t make up for Anthony. Sirius,what have you done?The show is doomed on Sirius.

    Carmelo is looking for a job. He can stay in New York. Sirius can keep the channel name the same and save on stationary.

    Win. Win.

    On which planet is Anthony Cumia (or Opie for that matter) even close to as good as Ron Bennington? Not this one.

    'Opie & Anthony's' Anthony Cumia fired over tweets
    By Todd Leopold, CNN
    July 9, 2014 -- Updated 1302 GMT (2102 HKT)

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    • "Opie & Anthony's" Anthony Cumia made racially charged tweets
    • Cumia took photo of African-American woman, claimed he was assaulted
    • "Behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents," says rep


    (CNN) -- "Opie & Anthony" has been cut in half.

    Anthony Cumia, the "Anthony" portion of the shock-jock radio team, was fired by employer Sirius XM after Cumia made a series of racially charged tweets Wednesday night.

    "SiriusXM has terminated its relationship with Anthony Cumia of the 'Opie & Anthony' channel," Patrick Reilly, the satellite radio broadcaster's media relations manager, said in a statement.

    "The decision was made, and Cumia informed, late Thursday, July 3, after careful consideration of his racially-charged and hate-filled remarks on social media. Those remarks and postings are abhorrent to SiriusXM, and his behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents."

    According to Cumia, on Wednesday night he was taking pictures in Times Square when an African-American woman objected to being photographed. Cumia claims he was assaulted by the woman.

    He let loose with a series of tweets, many with profane and inflammatory language. One called the woman an "animal pig face worthless meat sack" and worse.

    He did not report the alleged assault to the police. When asked why by one person on Twitter, he responded, "Because I can take some punches w/out wasting the cops time."

    RT @aefing: @MBHockey77 WHERE is the police report then? You screwed up. -Because I can take some punches w/out wasting the cops time.

    Cumia appeared to be caught by surprise by the firing.

    "Sirius decided to cave and fire me. Welcome to bizarro world. Fired for s**t that wasn't even on the air & wasn't illegal. So, who's next?" he tweeted Friday morning.

    It's not the first time the duo has been in trouble. In 2003, a stunt called "Sex for Sam," which involved people having sex in public places in exchange for prizes, got the pair canceled from New York's WNEW.

    I didn't even know they fired him. ​
