Publisher's Summary

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.

Fantastic! Ignore the poor reviews

As a longtime O&A listener, as well a loyal Anthony Cumia and A&A/TACS listener I was very hesitant to get this book. While I knew a good deal of the contents of this book, there were plenty of details that we either filled in or made more clear. Even if you think you know all things Anthony, this book is still quite enjoyable and revealing. Anthony does an excellent job reading it, and I feel like I got new insight into things like his arrest, SM firing, Jill Nicollini thing, and more. Anthony gives many details, yet keeps things classy as much as possible. He gives Opie the credit that e deserves, and provides a well rounded history of their 2 decade relationship. Skip the negative reviews, and get ready for a great listen. I may actually listen to this one again. After listening to this book, I wound up resubscribing to Compound Media for a regular dose of Anthony and Dave.

Beautifully written

Probably the best audio book I've ever listened to. Anthony is the best radio personality and now one of the best podcasters. Being able to hear how he became the comedy giant he is was incredible. I'm glad to have purchased and listened to this book.

Good stuff, but..

This is a good little bio from Ant, but if you’ve followed O&A for a while, youve heard it all before. I thought he’d might dive a little deeper than on the show, but he’s retelling most of the same stories.
Id still recomend it if youre a fan.

Great insight into radios greatest mind.

Loved this book! it really filled in the gaps for the west coast fans of the O&A show, who were definitely late to the party. A great example of the American dream realized. Very inspiring as well as being hilarious. Anthony did an amazing job on the performance.
