More Opie And Anthony Drama
November 5, 2007 at 5:36 AM (PT)
The latest drama for OPIE AND ANTHONY is an apparent feud with their local NEW YORK PD, CBS Alternative WXRK (92.3 K-ROCK)'s TRACY CLOHERTY, with the hosts complaining on the air FRIDAY that CLOHERTY has "decided not to help us anymore" and referring to an off-air battle earlier in the week.
Noting that CLOHERTY was not helping the show get a prize for a contest and musing that they would have to "take up a collection from the listeners" for a prize, ANTHONY CUMIA said that CLOHERTY has "disappeared ... since we had that little, um, altercation during one of the breaks" earlier last week, prompting OPIE to say that "Drama Queen (CLOHERTY) has decided not to help the OPIE AND ANTHONY show anymore. Drama Queen has decided to just avoid us at all costs ... I think she's, like, uh, playing a little game of 'I'll show them! I'll show them!'" He added that he told CLOHERTY to leave him alone, prompting her to walk away in what ANTHONY called "an awful stomping walk of dejection."
A tirade against the show's new WYSP/PHILADELPHIA PD JOHN COOK preceded O&A's cancellation on that station.
