Opie and Anthony Show Rundown, 92.3 K-Rock No More

opie 400x300 Opie and Anthony Show Rundown, 92.3 K Rock No More

Our favorite Video Game Shock Jocks are no more.  CBS Radio has let go of the gruesome two-some and Jimmy Norton and will no longer broadcast on 92.3 K rock.  On yesterdays show, E-rock had insider information about the future of the show and admitted he knew that the show was running on fumes.  Well today it’s official.  Opie and Anthony w/ Jim Norton’s syndicated radio show was canceled on 92.3 K Rock.  Following Opie on his twitter account, he made several statements concerning this news leading up to their official catch phrase “your mom’s box”, which means it’s over for O&A fans.

Rival disc jock, Howard Stern was quoted as saying, “Those guys had my time slot and even broadcasted in my old studio and they failed.”  Althogh I partly agree, Howard Stern is also forgetting the time difference of his departure and Opie and Anthony’s arrival to 92.3 K Rock was not immediate.

    Stern’s comments are retarded. The world and especially commercial radio is completely different from the time he left. Ipods were not ubiquitous and people were not inundated with so many other choices for most of his career at K-rock. His numbers fell off pretty hard during his last months there too. Stern is a douche.

    Stern RULES! BABBABOOEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    well i agree with you Glen buddy. No doubt stern RULES.. simply the best.

  4. blackartist

    but not all the time. :)

    “Althogh I partly agree, Howard Stern is also forgetting the time difference of his departure and Opie and Anthony’s arrival to 92.3 K Rock was not immediate.”

    What you’re forgetting is that Opie and Anthony replaced David Lee Roth who had very low ratings and was given the keys of the kingdom by CBS and they still cost the company million with their low ratings. Howard Stern had it worse than Opie and Anthony when he left because the FCC was targeting him left and right and Stern’s ratings were still high when he left and was still making money hand over fist for them, so the sad spin from the small Opie and anthony fans that they had it harder than Stern is B.S. and a bad excuse. They lost all of the stations that Stern was on and their ratings were low and getting lower. If they had better ratings, they would have not loss their jobs, simple as that. They did this to themselves.

    STERN LEAVING IS THE REASON FOR IPOD BEING MORE POPULAR. THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE TO LISTEN TO ANYMORE.

  7. darthmazza

    Never found Opie and Anthony to be funny, sorry Juan.

  8. STERNFAN

    I LIKE O & A. THEY SHOULD BOW TO THE KING AND JOIN THE REVOLUTION.

  9. babylinda

    It is simply retarded that our only Rock Station in NY is gone! Wtf man do we need 50 more pop stations? O&A you will be missed but I will still hear you on XM!

    The bigger issue isn’t whether or not their show was bad or good (according to arbitron ratings, they were doing pretty well), the issue was poor management by CBS and the terrestrial radio industry as a whole. Take a look at how crappy all of the big radio companies stocks have fared, Citadel trading for a penny a share, CBS and Clear Channel both under $3 a share…

    Stern didn’t just leave for the big payday, he left because the industry was headed in the toilet and the FCC was making it hard for him to deliver results in a “free speech” talk format.

    In the end, commercial radio will continue to suffer and suck as they don’t listen to their listeners and provide the content people will turn off their ipod to listen to on the radio.

    In the end, the whole industry should just say “your moms box”.

    As for all you Howie Fans, let’s see what happens when his contract runs out and he can’t get resigned for another $500 million from Sirius/XM due to their stock prices and the economy. Whether you love him or you hate him, he’s ALL about the money, and I’m sure some people will be quite surprised at what he does next…

  11. Daniel Perez

    @STERNFAN
    Wow. Do you really believe your statement that iPods became more popular when Stern left KRock? I think you need to take your brain pills because it’s obvious you are mentally ill my friend.

    Opie and Anthony WERE NOT “doing pretty well according to Arbitron ratings”, they were consistently at the bottom of the lists of twenty radio stations for morning shows that was cited in most articles about the ratings, and in the key “Persons 25-54″ demographic, they were nowhere to be found in a list of the top ten morning shows. They had some fair ratings in other selected demographics that they try to spin as some kind of a success by calling that selected demographic their “target”. Almost any radio show can point to a selected demographic where they do well, but Opie and Anthony still weren’t on top in their best performing demographic. The fact is that if they were doing well in the ratings, they would still be working at WXRK.

  16. lil Jimmy Nordon

    Well all i can say is i will miss them on CBS, but at least they are still on XM. I was getting tired of the 1 1/2 hr xm show, at least they are on for over 4 hours now. Once Opie settles down, they may even do 5 hours. Its obvious he loves doing radio. I used to love Howard, but once I found O&A i tried to hate them and compare the two shows on their own merit, and i just LOL more with the boys. Howard is just not funny anymore and I cant even listen to other radio anymore because they have corrupted my sense of humor so much, that nothing else is as funny as they are.

    I defy you to listen to Ant and Jimmy hysterically go off on some random topic and try and find a radio show anywhere and compare the two. They are in a league of their own and deserve so much respect for the daily comedy they give us.

  17. Q Dog

    “Regular” radio blows. Nothing compares to satellite. Howard Stern Rules…Jason Ellis Rules…RED DRAGONS!!!

    “As for all you Howie Fans, let’s see what happens when his contract runs out and he can’t get resigned for another $500 million from Sirius/XM due to their stock prices and the economy.

    Howard put Sirius?XM on the map. They are not going to let him go, he’s not only too valuable but he brings in the majority of the subscribers. If he wants another $500 Million for another five years, he will get it. The same can’t be said for Opie And Anthony who don’t even come close to his rantings or his subscribers.

  19. john

    Stern has fallen off the map also folks sorry to let you know that. BTW when sat radio finally runs out of cash or someone to pay their debts it will become another ww1 or premier radio for someone just another f’ing syndicator and howie will be gone, to bad!

  20. Jimmy

    “Stern has fallen off the map also folks sorry to let you know that.”

    Really? Then why Opie And Anthony constantly tries to bring up his name every chance they get? Hell, Stern’s name is being brought up now with why Krock is changing their format. And you have the nerve to say that Stern fell off the map? Give me a break.

  21. krinklekrinkle

    Is there a bigger self absorbed J.O. then “the guy” who bankrupted satelite radio? The lawyers killed the O & A show YOUR MOMMAS BOX!

  22. mrjuandrful

    @Q Dog
    Rethink that comment. Everyone knows Howard WAS the best show on sat.

    @Jimmy
    Everyone know the Howard Stern show is kept alive by the fans. The show would be crap without them! O&A Pests can be just as entertaining, just don’t stir their pot.

    @krinklekrinkle
    Agreed

  23. eric

    shut your mouth you stern fans. id rather listen to jimmy and ant actually be funny any day than listen to richard and sal put eachothers cocks in eachothers faces. artie is the only reason that stern is still listenable. and they would still be on if it wasnt for the fact that krock is changing their whole format to a top 40 station.

    my question is how did krock not work when they first came back as an alternative station? the only one in nyc that plays the likes of sublime, rage, tool, stp, nin, slipknot etc. and it didnt work out? once they turned into a classic rock station you knew it was over

  24. jivin

    This is the most poorly written article I’ve ever read.

  25. Jimmy

    “Is there a bigger self absorbed J.O. then “the guy” who bankrupted satelite radio?”

    And yet they would give him the same amount of money or more if they would want him to come back.

    “The lawyers killed the O & A show”

    No, ratings killed them. There is not other excuse they have other than the fact that they don’t have any talent.

  26. Poppa Squat

    Howard Stern had it worse than Opie and Anthony when he left because the FCC was targeting him left and right and Stern’s ratings were still high when he left and was still making money hand over fist for them, so the sad spin from the small Opie and anthony fans that they had it harder than Stern is B.S. and a bad excuse.

    You know nothing. Raido had changed long before Stern left. His ratings were not high before he bounced. O and A were damaged goods when they came back to radio. You don’t think they were on tight leashes? They couldn’t even use cetain language that they were free to use before St. Pat’s or, God forbid, Janet Jackson’s titty. Stern fans look at radio with blinders. O and A had no chance to succeed when they came back. Radio had changed already.

    Oh, and Artie sucks a fat one.

  27. markie mark

    I just remove 92.3 from my radio presets… if I wanted to listen to kanye west or that other crap then I could switch to crap radio stations,
    WXRK will be sorry for this change, ratings will drop to zerooooo!!!

  28. Omigosh

    You Stern fans are such sheep. Baa! Believe whatever the big jew tells you! Baaa! Stern is the best cus he tells me he is! Baaaaa!

    O+A was top ratings in NYC before they got kicked off. You’d be blind to think they got kicked for ratings. Its because they’re were switching formats, you blind little billy goats. Maybe read the news papers before getting your filtered down sources through stern. I hope he gets throat cancer!

  29. Jimmy

    “You’d be blind to think they got kicked for ratings.”

    Maybe if you checked your sources other than listen to O&A spin their nonsense and lies, you would notice that they lost all of the stations Howard was on because of low ratings and they were at near the bottom at the morning spot in New York. If they had better ratings, they would have still been employed at K Rock, format change or not. Maybe if some of you delusional O&A fans who believe every lie they tell you would actually think for yourselves and check to see if they were telling the truth, you would see how low their ratings actually were.

  30. Omigosh

    @Jimmy
    Their ratings actually jumped before they got kicked off, you turd burglar. YOU read YOUR sources. Your just spewing out what your glory-jew told you to make himself feel better. K-rcok isn’t krock anymore, fyi. A show like O+A won’t fit in with miley cyrus and..the Jonas brothers! Would iddu Howie-poo kill in a top 40? No, he goes to a specific audience, as does O+A. Howie AND O+A work in a male demographic that does not listen to bubble pop songs. So, obviously, what does not work with the flip will be given the boot. If it was hoo hoo in this situation and not O+A, the same would’ve happened to him.

    You show me some proof that I’m wrong and I might take what you say as a legitimate argument. Otherwise its just another Sheep in a flock, baa-ing their tired little minds off.

    @Jimmy

    I used to sell advertising for the Howard Stern Show (LA market) back in ’01-’03, and listened to it for years prior. Jimmy, you are a PERFECTLY typical Stern fan, by which I mean a totally ill-informed sheep, who just spouts out the O ‘n A lies that Stern perpetuates. Geez, his fanbase is as mindless as Limbaugh’s! You know why you guys still use “Babbabooey” as the battle cry? Because the show is stuck in the 90s, still living off the equity that they built back then, and has barely been dynamic since. I’m an O ‘n A fan because Stern lost me when he decided to be do a lazy, static, tired show. Perhaps one day you’ll realize what I figured out long ago (but I doubt it).

  32. Folicleface

    Stern has selective memory, the station was firing everybody it was only a matter of time before they cut O&A. Stern hasn’t been relevant for over a decade now living off past accolades when he was actually funny. His movie was a slap in the face to hardcore stern fans in his attempt to be liked by the same people who tried to have him thrown off the air. O and A still can relate to regular people they way stern used to before he started having custom built mansions and marrying a supermodel, and earning 500 million dollars once you can no longer relate to your audience your show will suck and his show has sucked consistently for about a decade. O and A out perform him on every level. didn’t satelite radio file for bankruptcy and seeing as how he was supposed to be their cash cow i guess he failed too. fuck howard stern and all his money.

  33. krinklekrinkle

    I tried to listen to Hoo Hoo Howie brag about himself but thatcackling sidekick wouldn’t stop talking over him. Then the coke fiend chimed in, add another chin Artie and try and do a show with little Jimmy (happy birthday by the way) without the pests getting to you. Hoo hoo wants to talk about failures, lets start with beer league!

  34. krinklekrinkle

    @Jimmy

    Your right Jimmy, If they wanted him back. But nobody does! Yeah he has such a great product that Sirius sales are up to what? The stock is worth what? Hoo hoo howie hasn’t been relevant since before Y2K, isn’t that right robin?

    21 WXRK-FM Alternative 1.71.51.5

    That’s their ratings in the morning. They are ranked number 21 with a 1.71 share. i don’t know what is worse, Opie and Anthony or their delusional fans who believe they are more popular then they are. The sad part is that they will still try to find a way to spin this. pathetic.

  36. brandon

    @ jimmy

    Wow are you a dummy. Posting that link was the dumbest thing you could do. Those ratings cover 42 hours of radio. Of those 42 hours, O&A are on only 15 of them. Also, the demo for those numbers is ages 6+. That’s not going to giva an accurate guage of the shows target audience. Stern would not have done well given such a broad range. Neither stern nor O&A were put out there to target first graders, senior citizens, or supermarket aisles. Please get a more accurate rating before running your mouth. Oh, and another thing…. you made a mention of O&A bringing up sterns name all the time. I listen to O&A everyday. i have for several years. You obviously do not. Until yesterday, i had not heard them mention stern since i could remember. Unless you listen, you can’t say if they do or do not. You are a clone. I challenge you to produce an original thought or opinion in respone. Or maybe just the truth would do. Baby steps Jimmy, baby steps.

  37. brandon

    @Jimmy

    the real ratings for just the show were close to a 5 was good for #2 in the demo.

  38. mrjuandrful

    @brandon
    Although I agree with you that hoo hoo is rarely spoken about on the show, today’s rampage more than made up for their silence. O&A began the show ripping into Howard and Robyn and had me cracking up when they read the transcript from The Stern Show. Radio Gold!

    @Jimmy
    Brandon’s updated ratings look more like it, sorry!

    Lastly, did it even make sense for Howard to bash a fellow business partner? Not a good financial move imo.

  39. william

    Stern is a tool. Why attack people that work for the same company? I am an O&A fan, but lets face in the show has waned in the past few years, I think doing two shows was overdoing it. This weeks shows have been better than any in recent memory. It’s like a bad drug I wouldn’t turn it off even though I was tired of them closing the show a 10:30 has been good. Howard stinks, and it’s foolish to think either of these programs put satellite on the map.

  40. danielle

    I MISS THE OLD KROCK!now new york doesn’t have any rock stations and waaay too many top forty stations. i encourage opie and anthony fans and the old krock fans to PROTEST!! let’s get them back!!

  41. mrjuandrful

    @danielle
    I’d love for them to make their way back to terrestrial radio. 92.3 right now has the same songs EVERY HOUR!

  42. Baldwin

    @babylinda
    I agree it sucks and it’s stupid that NY doesn’t have a rock station. Considering the venues that come that come through the NY/NJ area on a regular basis. Hopefully they will eventually change back or some other station gets turned into a new rock station.

    Hey Jimmy, Look at the Sirius Xm Stock! Back when XM started…and by the way…Howard was not the First to go to Satilite Radio!!…who was there Jimmy??..Need a hint dumbass? O & A. There stock prices were in the mid 20′s. I owned it so i know! After Sirius added Howie Stern…There stock was below Five dollars a share.
    There is NO WAY HOWARD WILL GET ANOTHER 500 MILLION!! I love my SAT radio, but you need to face the facts!! Howard ruined Sirius!! He’s doing the same show he did years ago…Only with FAT ASS ARTIE. The “HOLE” is talking the same shit she has always.
    If for what ever reason..O & A go..i will cancell my subscription…and i’m sure there will be lots following!! I mean really…who wants to listen to the same old “HOO HOO SHIT OVER AND OVER?”, AND BUBBA THE SPERM SPONGE, FURRELL…

  45. chris

    this guy is an idiot they repeat sterns name every second they can and then censor it out by playing an annoying sound clip that says radio edit on there youtube videos. they copy off the lesbian stuff, the porn star material, weird mini shows, their own little whack pack, the prank phone calls, and just everything howard stern started. its sooooo pathetic they dwell on his sucess. no one i know or heard of listens to the pests, i would love to have free sirius radio cause i would listen every single day. to opie and anthony u guys suck and stop calling stern hoo hoo you sound dumb as shit! there will be none following if dopie and anthony quit they will be happy. they say hes funny and succesful but yet they continue to bash him. stern doesnt have to talk about them because with the ratings he has these minor jokes arent with wasting time. i hope they get cancer or something fuck em

  46. Susan

    Two things boys:
    1. When I hear the ad with Anthony selling those little innocent Vermont Teddy Bears It just brings to mind a hooded slayer going through the factory cutting their little heads off. Just dont feel that Anthony is the best representative for that product!
    2. I had to laugh when you had the homeless on and were giving them 100 dollar bills…who the fuck is going to believe a homeless person actually has a real 100 bill? Also it makes it a lot easier for them to loose-ever think of giving $10.00 or $20.00′s you dopes?

    Happy Birthday Jimmy
