The uncensored and long-awaited life story of radio’s most notorious shock jock, Anthony Cumia.
Today, Anthony Cumia is the co-host of the wildly popular “Anthony Cumia Show,” which live-streams to a huge following of paid subscribers; however, Anthony is most well-known from the legendary, nationally syndicated “Opie and Anthony Show.” Permanently Suspended is an all-access pass to the controversial mayhem that ensued on-and-off the air.
A must-listen for all diehard O&A fans, Permanently Suspended finally answers the questions that everyone has been waiting for: What really happened between Opie and Anthony? What was the reasoning behind the multiple firings? What prompted the tweeting about the Times Square NYC incident? What is the true account of the controversial allegations? What are the never-before-revealed details of Anthony’s stint in rehab? What does the future hold for his livestream podcast? These questions, and many more, will be answered.
Permanently Suspended is a humorous, no-holds-barred account of the legendary career and life of Anthony Cumia - a blue collar guy who made his dreams come true, rising above all obstacles to become one of the most well-known and successful personalities in radio history.
I could give 10 stars if it was possible
Read the book and the audio dint disappoint.
Inspiring and Insightful
I know the title of this review is pretty smug, and overall douchey, but in all seriousness this book was a great look into one of the most interesting people in this country. I’m only 24 and have just came across O&A through YouTube clips this past year. Now about 6 months later I’m positive I’ve listened through some of the best and worst moments in radio history. Now getting to see that Anthony is still out here producing great content is so exciting. This book is a MUST read but would HIGHLY suggest the audio version, this book just would not be the same without Anthony’s voice.
A View Inside the Mind of Cumia
Great read. Being the autobiography of a radio host, the audio version is the best. Great impersonations. Some interesting stories and anecdotes not told before and some that have been, but, explained deeper. Opie is mentioned quite a bit throughout the book and given credit for Anthony’s success. I would have liked to hear Anthony open the door for a reconciliation.
