    It was announced yesterday after a drama filled week that Ron and Fez will be moved from the Opie and Anthony channel to Raw Dog starting January 6, 2014.

    Even if you don't listen to them it's a big deal. And here is why.

    -It leaves a potential opening for another show on the Opie and Anthony channel
    -I suspect the Premium channels will be moved around HOPEFULLY to give more people access to them under a basic plan
    -Now Ron and Fez will be heard to all SiriusXM subscribers and not just XM subs or Sirius subs with a Premium package
    -It may signify that Opie and Anthony may have a bigger changeup, perhaps combining with other content on another channel

    My personal guess is that now that Tim Sabean is the program director of Talk on SiriusXM that he sees and opportunity to get some Stern fans and other talk fans on board with some other content that they have been missing out on. And he just wants to make it easier for them to access it.

    This is good. I've heard people say that they wanted more talk options across platforms.

    Why not just do away with the premium package and charge one price for everything? That way Stern could be made available to XM radio subs without additional costs as well as O&A could be on Sirius platform the same as well

    We can only hope. To me that would be such an improvement. The current packages are so confusing. And they prevent a lot of shows from having more listeners.

    Damn, I forgot about Ron and Fez.

    Is Fez still claiming he likes chicks?

    I think at this point, SXM needs to be planning for their post-Stern days. If he gets another contract it will be 3 times more money and probably just 1 day a week 4 weeks a year. I think this shows probably the first steps in that process.

    Hopefully that's what they are doing. If Howard re-ups, I can't picture it being quite as bad as you're saying, but I'd guess it will still be less shows than he's doing now. You can't expect someone like that to go from 100 mph (161 kph for you) to 0 mph (that's zed kph for you) instantly. He's slowing down at his own pace.

    Getting ready for the change should have been a higher priority some time ago.

    So apparently O&A are now live at 6:30, following the producer's pre-show. There's also a post-show from 10:30 to 11 with the same producer...but wasn't that post-show a thing from years ago?

    I tried to listen yesterday but I couldn't make it 10minutes and I was a huge fan when they were in Boston/New York

    Dumbest move of all time putting O&A at 630 to 1030.

    Really dumb move by that fat, disgusting elephant Tim Saben.

    Well, at least you gave it a chance. 10 minutes since Boston/New York should do.

    Ron and Fez has always been hit or miss for me. I will say it's ok but not great. I can't listen to it unless their topic is something that interest me otherwise I tune out.

    Ron & Fez Weekdays 12 pm to 3pm ET - Channel 99

    Three hours of highly addictive radio featuring unexpected guests and an audience that gets involved. Conversations range from the absurdly hilarious to moments of actual intellectual fulfillment.
