Apparently Citadel's decision to drop "Opie & Anthony" from the 95X lineup yesterday, replacing it with a music-intensive show branded as "Shut Up and Rock" was a surprise to O&A themselves.
Citadel rocker 95X (WAQX) has once again changed its morning show. Effective today, the syndicated Opie & Anthony Show is out, and locally-programmed "Shut Up & Rock Mornings" are in. WAQX had carried the O&A show since January 2007.
Howard Stern is back from his two week vacation, but not in the five markets where Citadel Communications had been broadcasting the shock jock's show.
