    Opie tweeted that he has re-signed, and will do an afternoon show with Artie as co host. Artie has yet to confirm. They could still call it the O+A Show. Believe it when I hear it. Sirius is gonna re-hire Artie? Artie can do afternoon radio in Manhattan, and still do a daily podcast from his NJ home? If true, can't see it lasting very long. Seems like a big FU to Howie from both of them. After a week of hearing Anthony, Jim, Sam, Ronnie B and others describe what a prick Opie is, This won't last long if it even launches.

    Opie has not done well with co-hosts, it seems. I don't listen and rarely have ever heard the old show. Just didn't seem funny to me. I can't picture this Opie and Artie thing ending well at all.

    This is interesting, but I don't think this is a good match. I thought Opie was looking for a gig with Chris DiStefano (good), Vic Henly (could be ok), Sherrod Small (not good), and/or frequent and regular shows with Pete Davidson (great), but none of this came to pass. Artie is a a quick wit and he's better at telling stories than he is as a stand up (IMHO), but this show just sounds like a hastily formed idea. I'll listen but I can't imagine this will last or end well.

    Maybe Opie thinks Artie can help bring comedians in?

    Last we heard, the salary offer was unsacceptable to Opie. Suddenly it's acceptable? Like I asked in a previous thread, where else was he gonna go????

    Who'd artie have on his podcast a week or two ago? Was it Anthony or Opie? Whoever it was sucked. I'd much rather listen to artie in his living room.

    Very hard for me to believe this is true. Artie has been really fucked up on recent podcast. He has significant nasal/sinus issues from snorting coke and heroin and sounds as though he has a constant cold. Dan had to babysit Artie and watch him get on the ferry to get to a recent podcast he did with a comedian friend.

    I'm sorry but I have never found Opie and Anthony show funny or interesting. No matter how much I tried I just couldn't get into their show.
    But Anthony is ok on his own, Jim Nortan is funny anywhere but Opie, that dude is not funny or interesting

    And sorry, Artie and Opie don't make a match. Artie needs to be with someone else, Opie just sucks

    Beggars can't be choosers. Both of them have nothing to lose. I give it less than 3 months. Artie is too lazy to put any real effort into it and Opie will hate working with him.

    Artie makes decent money doing his paid podcast on his own. Plus he can do whatever he wants. I don't see him giving that up for something like this.
