SiriusXM Fires ‘Opie Radio Show’ Host Gregg Hughes
Report surfaces that satellite radio company made move over a bathroom video.
SiriusXM has fired Opie Radio Show host Gregg Hughes.
“SiriusXM confirms it has terminated its relationship with Gregg ‘Opie’ Hughes, host of the Opie Radio Show weekday afternoons on the Faction Talk channel,” a statement from SiriusXM reads, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The statement had no reference to the cause of the firing, with the company rep adding, “SiriusXM does not publicly discuss internal personnel issues.”
According to The New York Daily News, however, the radio site All Access reported Hughes’ termination is a result of “a video made of an employee using the bathroom.”
Hughes’ former co-host Anthony Cumia was fired three years ago after posting a series of racist remarks on Twitter.
Jim Norton replaced Cumia shortly afterwards and the show was renamed.
