Radio bad boys Opie & Anthony were left without a New York City broadcast home Monday when CBS
Radio announced it would dump the current format on 92.3 FM.

"It's officially over," Opie (Gregg Hughes) said in a Twitter feed to followers. "Extremely
bummed. This is not good for our show, period!"

It's not, because as of now, loyal followers used to listening for free will have to shell out
$12.99 a month to hear them on XM Radio.

Opie and Anthony were pushed out as part of CBS Radio's overhaul of K-Rock, which, starting Tuesday, becomes a Top-40 outlet, playing the likes of Beyoncé and Katy Perry.

Since 2006, through a unique deal, Opie and Anthony were broadcast locally on 92.3 weekday mornings until 9 a.m. and then they walked to XM studios to finish their mornings on the
pay-radio service.

Starting today, Opie and Anthony (Cumia) will do their show live for five hours on XM Satellite
Radio, a source said.

They could return to free radio down the road.

"They'll have a terrestrial radio future if they want one," said Tom Taylor, executive editor of "However, there may not be an obvious home in New York City."

K-Rock has suffered since Howard Stern left in December 2005. After Stern left, CBS tried a talk
show and then went back to rock with Opie and Anthony.

Opie and Anthony were once a hit on CBS-owned WNEW Radio, but were taken off the air in 2002
after an infamous "Sex in St. Patrick's" stunt.

Dom Theodore, vice president of contemporary hit programming at CBS Radio, said the switch gives
New York a choice for hit music "for the first time in nearly 30 years."
