    'O & A' to Hold Press Conference Today at 12:00 Noon ET at Hard Rock Cafe in New York City

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- XM Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: XMSR - News), the nation's leading provider of satellite radio with more than 2.1 million subscribers, today announced that talk radio personalities Opie and Anthony will make their long-anticipated return to radio on XM Satellite Radio.

    Opie and Anthony will premiere a live, weekday program on XM on October 4. The show will be carried exclusively on a new premium XM channel.

    "We learned a lot during our two years away from our fans, and we can't wait to get back on the radio and reconnect with them," said Greg "Opie" Hughes. "This is a huge milestone for us because XM provides a nationwide audience that local radio simply can't match." Anthony Cumia added, "XM is the future of radio as we know it, and it is the perfect platform for us to entertain our radio fans, in the same way that HBO provided more creative freedom for people in TV."

    Opie and Anthony are among the most popular and controversial duos in radio. Their irreverent wit made their afternoon radio show number one among male listeners between the ages of 18 and 49 in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Dallas, Cleveland, and Buffalo, according to Arbitron. O & A have not been on the air since August 2002, and their large fan base has been waiting patiently for their return. The new show on XM will serve up their offbeat humor that has drawn millions of listeners and made them loyal fans.

    "XM has been called 'the HBO of satellite radio,' and like HBO, we can provide O & A fans with a unique way to enjoy their edgy humor," said Hugh Panero, President & CEO of XM Satellite Radio. "The O & A show is the latest example of the incredible range of programming available on XM."

    The Opie and Anthony show is the newest addition to XM's critically acclaimed programming line-up, which offers digital radio channels devoted to everything from classical music to hip hop, college and professional sports to audio books, financial news to stand-up comedy.

    XM's 120-plus channels are available from coast to coast for a basic monthly fee of $9.99. XM will carry Opie and Anthony on a premium channel (XM Channel 202) for an additional monthly fee of $1.99. XM subscribers can pre- order the new channel starting today by calling XM at 1-800-XM-RADIO (1-800-967-2346) or visiting XM online at http://www.xmradio.com.

    MEDIA ADVISORY: Opie and Anthony will hold a press conference today at 12 noon ET at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City at 221 West 57th Street.

    Yeah, I loved them when they were on in Boston, I didn't really listen much when they went to New York. Still, I wish I had satellite radio

    The show was fun and the fans had unauthorized real time streams up (syndication underground) I wonder if that will contine. O & A is good but I really liked Ron & Fez.

  6. I guess that means Howard will be going to Sirius. He hate those two.

    Satellite radio will be nice until the FCC decides to start monitoring that, too.

  7. Fucking sick. The new radio I got is XM capable too. The wait is almost over!

  8. Can't wait.

    I doubt howard is going Satelite at all, he just used the talk as a way to draw back his sagging ratings.

    My only complaint is the O&A channel is an extra $2/mo over the normal XM sub, not that $12 a month over the $10 I pay now is a big deal.

    The Roady 2 just came out for XM and it is an amazing unit, and they even have a walkman-style portable dock coming out for it this fall.

  10. LOL. This is great. http://www.catholicleague.com/04pres...pieanthony.htm

    best part:
    “We wish Opie and Anthony well and trust they have learned their lesson. In a press release today, they said, ‘We learned a lot during our two years away from our fans, and we can’t wait to get back on the radio and reconnect with them.’

    “We hope they do more than that: never has our office been subjected to more vulgar and obscene rants than when we got Opie and Anthony kicked off the air. It would be wise, therefore, for these guys to go about their business having fun, but without stooping into the gutter just to please the lowest common denominator. There are a lot of depraved young men out there and they don’t need any further encouragement. And one more thing: lay off us Catholics.”
