Gregg “Opie” Hughes Insults Howard Stern — STAND DOWN, DIPSH*T

Written by , Posted in General

Want to know how a talentless hack gets his name in the press? By riding the coattails of someone people actually care about, of course. Gregg “Opie” Hughes of Opie & Anthony took some time to insult the King of All Media’s reduced radio schedule, with ridiculous claims about how he tanked the Sirius stock and ruined his brand by going mainstream on America’s Got Talent. It goes without saying that Hughes’ probably loses sleep at night thinking of the radio titan, wishing he could garner one tenth of Stern’s payday and even a modicum of his loyal audience. The fact that they guy even got a salary for his horrible radio show is astounding. So Opie — if you’re reading this — just know that when you insult the King — YOU INSULT ME. And in case you’re wondering where this feud began, Stern successfully placed a gag order on Opie & Anthony back in the day, and it appears the bloated baby never got over it. Listen below to Stern recounting the gag order and to Hughes’ original rant.

    Interesting that every single filing with the SEC at no time did Sirius have greater amount of subscribers then XM. mmmm… Even after the merger both entities had to file there subscribers and even then Sirius still never had more subscribers. Howard Stern had no effect what so ever to bring Subscribers to Sirius. Sirius take over of XM was simply a leveraged buy out with a smaller company taking over a bigger company. And if you listened to the program at all. he wasn’t basing Howard. He was simply pointing out the obvious that Howard has no original shows. Its all Re-Runs. An the Howard Fans are upset.
