OPIE, the former SIRIUSXM and CBS RADIO host, announced the new podcast, “OPIE RADIO,” himself in a video in MARCH (NET NEWS 3/19); WESTWOOD ONE did not announce the show or its debut date until a release TODAY (5/2).

This is a new chapter for OPIE and we’re giving him the creative freedom to develop a unique podcast that will reveal his true nature.”
