Anthony Cumia's Network Adds Two Shows
June 15, 2015 at 4:32 AM (PT)
ANTHONY CUMIA is expanding his podcast and online video network with the addition of controversial VICE co-founder GAVIN MCINNES for a new twice-weekly show and a new podcast, "LEGION OF SKANKS," with comics BIG JAY OAKERSON, LUIS J. GOMEZ, and DAVE SMITH. MCINNES' show will air MONDAYS and THURSDAYS at 9:30p (ET), and "LEGION OF SKANKS" is airing TUESDAYS and WEDNESDAYS at 10p (ET) and will be available to paid subscribers of CUMIA's show. In addition, a live stream of "THE ROAST OF BIG JAY OAKERSON" will air TODAY (6/15).
MCINNES, who has been hosting a show, "FREE SPEECH," online, stirred up controversy with several remarks in various venues, including a piece on transphobia at THOUGHT CATALOG that led to his departure from ad agency ROOSTER.
On the "LEGION OF SKANKS," CUMIA said that the addition of the show "marks a commitment to those that have supported http://AnthonyCumia.com these last ten months, that this platform is here to stay and will evolve into a network." OAKERSON added, “I’m very excited to be making this move and very proud to be the first new show on the network. The fact that a broadcaster like ANTHONY believes in our show makes me feel that LEGION OF SKANKS is more than a passion project and something that is actually important to people.”
“ANTHONY CUMIA is a legend and I couldn’t be more excited to be working with him. I don’t think anyone else in the world would pay us to say the most horrible things come to our mind,” said GOMEZ, and SMITH added, “ANTHONY CUMIA is once again showing his poor judgement skills working with the SKANKS. We are very excited."
