The latest on OPIE AND ANTHONY's contract negotiations with SIRIUS XM RADIO comes from a tweet from OPIE, telling his TWITTER followers that "(speaking for me) I want to continue, their current offer is a joke and an insult, waiting to see if they wake up, if not I have plans."
Other tweets dismissed fans' suggestions that a deal was done. The show's deal with the satellite company expires on OCTOBER 1st.
The show's longtime Exec. Producer STEVE CARLESI exited the show this week, and OPIE tweeted that "STEVE C wasn't fired by SIRIUS. His position was eliminated! That's right, folks, they eliminated the Producer position of our show!" He also said "STEVE was a soldier for 12 years and will be missed. Worked his ASS off!"
