Opie and Anthony canned

Shock jocks Opie and Anthony have been fired by radio station WNEW and their syndicated show has been cancelled. They'd gotten into trouble for broadcasting a live account of a couple supposedly having sex in St. Patrick's Cathedral.

They've been fired before, in Boston in 1998. As long as someone thinks they'll get ratings, they'll get hired again. Nothing shocking here.
