    Radio host ‘blindsided’ by new afternoon time slot
    SiriusXM radio host Gregg “Opie” Hughes has been ousted from his prime morning slot to the afternoon — and he is not happy about it.

    “Back tomorrow at 3 p.m.,” he tweeted Monday. “I did not want to leave mornings. Short-term deal. They wanted longer. I said, no [bleeping] way. We do a great show.”

    Jim Norton, who’s been co-hosting with Hughes since Anthony Cumia was fired over racist tweets in 2014, will take the morning slot with Sam Roberts.

    “I was blindsided,” Hughes tells us. “No one told me this was going down until last week . . . That’s why I am so mad.”

    Hughes confirms he took a pay cut, but insists he is still “the
    third-highest paid” at the network.

    next Opie will be appearing during the afternoon drive time so Opie can be #1 in cars...
