Cumia loves talking and always wanted to create a radio talk show inspired by the famous New York City media personalities Howard Stern and Don Imus.
Anthony began his show in 1995 and the show was stopped on two different occasions because of some controversial statements made by the hosts.
Anthony Cumia and his friend, Gregg “Opie” Hughes ran the show until 2001, when the comedian, Jim Norton joined the duo, making the show more colourful as well as attracting more audience.
However in 2014, Cumia was fired from the show by SiriusXM Radio due to a series of tweets that were considered to be racial and hate filled.
Due to the sack, the medial personality began a podcast which he named after himself, The Anthony Cumia Show which he hosted solely until September 2017.
In 2017, the show was renamed to The Artie and Anthony Show after he was joined by popular American comedian and actor Artie Lange.
