Opie and Anthony is an American radio show hosted by Gregg “Opie” Hughes and Anthony Cumia.
The show launched in March 1995 in afternoons at WAAF in Boston.
On August 22, 2002, the show was suspended following its third annual Sex for Sam contest held on August 15 that encouraged listeners to have sex in risky places for prizes while a witness reported from the location.
In the segment, comedian Paul Mecurio, on a cellphone, described Brian Florence and Loretta Harper, a Virginia couple visiting Manhattan, having simulated sex in a vestibule at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, several feet away from a Mass service. The couple were arrested for public lewdness, and Mecurio for acting in concert.
Opie with Jim Norton is an American radio show hosted by Gregg “Opie” Hughes and Jim Norton that aired from July 2014 to September 2016 after radio personality Anthony Cumia, one half of the Opie and Anthony show on The Opie and Anthony Channel, was fired after he posted a series of tweets following an alleged off-air incident with a black woman on the street. Cumia claimed he was punched by the woman while attempting to take a picture in Times Square.
CrystalOne Radio streams this combination of both shows.
