CBS RADIO is sticking with OPIE AND ANTHONY under a new deal with the morning team and XM SATELLITE RADIO. O&A will continue to air live 6-9a ET on Rock WXRK (92.3 K-ROCK)/NEW YORK, Alternative WBCN/BOSTON, and Alternative WKRK (92.3 K-ROCK)/CLEVELAND. XM will continue to air the show for five hours, including two exclusive hours 9-11a ET.
A statement from O&A read, "We are both very excited to be re signing with CBS RADIO. Hosting morning drive on K-ROCK in NEW YORK CITY has been a career highlight, and when you add in WBCN BOSTON and WKRK CLEVELAND it makes it even more special and fulfilling. That said... we look forward to our next firing with great anticipation."
"CBS RADIO is excited to be able to continue this unique partnership with OPIE AND ANTHONY," said CBS VP of Programming CHRIS OLIVERO. "They have accomplished the rare radio feat of not only dominating afternoon drive but now bringing that same level of ratings success to the ultra competitive morning drive slot. We are thrilled to have O&A on our stations."
