i don't think he cares about money. what opie actually wants is to be loved, to be famous + relevant and have a huge hit viral video. not much chance of that happening now

Then he can facebook live/periscope his suicide off the Brooklyn Bridge.. that will trend/be viral/make him more famous. PROBLEM SOLVED OPSTER!

Apparently his salary was 250k... that is RIDICULOUS. That is about 5x the level a normal producer at Sirius makes. No wonder he is gone.

Radio produces are making 50 grand in NYC? Wow. Don't go into radio kids.

Granted this was nearly a decade ago but East Side Dave quit because he was making 35k a year to produce and be second mic on Ron and Fez and they would not budge on a pay raise.

I don't feel sorry for him, trying to be "talent" in radio is a huge gamble and you're never secure in your job unless you reach the peak. He is a no name comic who was probably lucky to have his slot.

It's the second most listened to show on the platform right? They're idiots.

I just want to say I really enjoy Jim and Sam. I like Sam and Travis together and Jim is well Jim, I pretty much listen to every show to completion these days. I drive an hour a day so that takes care of half of it then I usually finish up the second half with my air pods in as I get home and unwind. The only thing that pisses me off right now is we aren't getting loving Ant in every couple weeks.

Whoever said it's second most is lying, they don't give out the numbers. I wouldn't even think it would be in the top 5 at this point, there are a lot of other big name programs people listen to on SiriusXM. Like zero women listen to them, and there are a bunch of real popular women's talk shows as well, not to mention Dr. Laura.

It's also mostly bad, the talks are forced and stale, they spent over an hour on Wrestlemania and then the UFC on Monday, and then laughed about Rob Ford for like 45 minutes today.

Eh, I liked Nick even if his show could be a bit one note.

At least he wasn't as middle of the road as Norton and Sam or as loving objectively awful as Ellis or the Scottish guy that can't do radio or Covino and Riches Mornin' Attitude hackfest.

The channel line up was poor already and they just got rid of the only show that actually had its own voice.

See, the thing is, both sides like to poo poo on moderates but what the gently caress is wrong with being middle of the road? (i'm not at all myself, but I get seeing both sides and not being a wing nut.)


Also it's a meh lineup but "own voice" is kind of silly, it was to make you laugh, not spew partisan politics for 85% of the show... that's why they offer a lot of political channels and if you're right wing literally turn on your AM/FM stereo and have at it for free.

...of course it was staying the same price, you never lower prices for media subs like that.. they only go up. Maybe he will throw some deals out though if people cancel like SXM does... which is a smart business practice.

As my friend said, people are paying more for his service than for Netflix content to hear a bunch of alt-righters spew distorted crime statistics and say how they are better than black people because of said statistics with mediocre jokes thrown in a bit.

They canned a woman morning talk show host "Wake Up With Taylor", I don't think they were ever giving her the salary they were giving O&A but she started her own live morning show and charges like $5 a month a co-worker told me and she's already had like 15k people sign up and said she's making way more than she ever did at SiriusXM.

If Anthony has 10k subs at $15 a month that's 150k a month and his costs for running the poo poo probably aren't even a third of that.
