What was rumored last month has now been confirmed as true. David Lee Roth did his last show on Friday, and Opie and Anthony start up on CBS radio this Wednesday. They’ll be in seven markets including Boston (on good ‘ole WBCN) and New York.
Update: They’re back on DirectTV too.
“The uproar from fans, pleading with us to put Opie & Anthony back on the air, was deafening to say the least,” said Dan Fawcett, EVP/Programming Acquisition for DirecTV. “And though our original intent was to focus our XM service on more music, we now understand the passionate following that Opie & Anthony have and we’re happy to bring them back on board in an expanded format.”
