O&A Battle CBS Over Website Plug

OPIE AND ANTHONY are running into trouble with CBS RADIO over a promotion they arranged with BREAK.COM. O&A spoke on TUESDAY's show about the promotion, which involves the show picking videos for the video clip website's home page, but complained on the XM SATELLITE RADIO portion of the show that CBS Rock WXRK (92.3 K-ROCK)/NEW YORK GM TOM CHIUSANO ordered that the mentions of BREAK.COM be dumped from the CBS feed because BREAK.COM is not a paid sponsor of the show.
"I've heard commercials for another video site [on WXRK]," said OPIE, suggesting it as the reason for CHIUSANO's action, adding, "What bothers me the most is that he [CHIUSANO] doesn't come in here and tell us there's a problem."
