    SiriusXM Remodels ‘Opie Radio’; Re-Brands as ‘Faction Talk.’

    The former “Opie Radio”
    channel is rebranded by SiriusXM as “Faction Talk.” The satcaster describes the channel as “an unpredictable and provocative channel inspired by its punk-infused sister channel, the music and sports-focused “Faction.” The new “Faction Talk” launches on Monday (1/23) and will feature the live talk lineup of Jim Norton and Sam Roberts from 8:00 am to 11:00 am ET; the Jason Ellis show from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm; and the “Opie Radio Show” with Greg “Opie” Hughes from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

    Good. It's hilarious Sirius called Opie's bluff and fucked him over.

    Once his contract is up, he'll be the new morning guy at Compound Media.

    Jim and Sam also said there's one more big name they're going to be announcing soon. And that faction talk will become a free channel in the future. First Ellis and the name. Then this new guy (wonder if it's Rogan, or Adam or one of the podcast guys) Then it goes free none premium..... which is weird because faction music with only Ellis was a premium. My buddy doesn't get it with his full music package.

    Jim Norton and Sam Roberts suck big time. Norton lost his funny long ago and Roberts is just plain annoying. Opie is leaps and bounds better.

    I find that statement hard to believe. Opie isn't leaps and bounds better than anything.

    Would be hilarious if Anthony only allowed him on as Spuds Buckley and he had to sell Torpid Sloth T-Shirts on the show.

    Sharrod and the angry Cuban are a bit much......With all the laughing you'd be led to believe something funny was happening but it's all smoke and mirrors

    Why are they always shouting over one another on Opie Radio.
