Cumia began to contribute and produce comedy bits for Hughes and the station's morning show soon after, while working his installation job.
By early 1995, Hughes and Cumia decided to become the hosts of their own radio show, and Hughes produced an air check and sent it to several stations.

Hughes and Cumia accepted an offer to host afternoons at WAAF in Boston, Massachusetts and launched Opie and Anthony in March 1995.
The pair were fired in April 1998 for an April Fool's Day prank that had listeners believe Boston Mayor Thomas Menino was killed in a car accident while transporting a young female Haitian prostitute.
RT @Pat_Healy: @Melissa Stetten Is this him by any chance? Actor Brian Presley (right) has denied the claims made by model Melissa Stetten (left), that he tried to chat her up (right) on board a red eye flight that flew out of Los Angeles to New York two days ago'I learned today this person has been tweeting about me drinking beer in the airplane bathroom, and trying to commit adultery with her on the airplane. And in reference to claims that he was drinking, Mr Presley concluded: 'Sobriety, God, & My Family are the most important things in my life! I will pay this no more attention and I encourage all of you to do the same. They Even took pictures of me while I was sleeping.Cumia first met radio personality Gregg "Opie" Hughes when the latter held an O. Simpson song parody contest on his Nighttime Attitude show on Long Island radio station WBAB.He and Joe decided to enter the contest, and recorded an entry as Rotgut titled "Gonna Electric Shock OJ" to the tune of "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding.5 years later I was still listening daily, it was my source for news and humor. He picked me up in his car at my hotel and we went to an amazing Italian restaurant in the meat packing district. He was exactly how I pictured and we had so much to talk about.
