No more “Nick & Artie” as DiPaolo leaves; “The Artie Lange Show” returns/debuts in 2013

Listeners and viewers of “The Nick and Artie Show” tonight will find no Nick there.

Nick DiPaolo “is pursuing some great opportunities,” according to that show’s Facebook page, which posted over the weekend that when the satellite sports talk show returns tonight, it’ll be known on DirecTV and SiriusXM simply as “The Artie Lange Show.”

The Artie Lange Show has a new home page, Twitter feed @ArtieLangeShow and Facebook page.

It’ll be interesting to hear how Lange explains the split and the new show tonight, as the schedule remains the same: Monday through Friday, 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on DirecTV’s Audience Channel 239, and on SiriusXM’s Sports Play-By-Play Channel 208 and SportsZone Channel 790.

  2. Let’s face it, the only reason the show exists is because of Artie Lange and his stint with Howard Stern. But with the first episode last night it is clear they will need more of a solid host with him to help out more. Wonder if Goose is available..

  3. looks like nick refuses to lick dirctv’s dick, where as artie is going full bukakki cockfest.

  4. I have my own national radio show and have enjoyed and followed Artie’s career. Total bummer these two longtime pals aren’t together because many loved the Nick and Artie show. Has Nick made any official statement? Is everything the same-same odd announcer/show character and same incredible specialized set they had made last fall? Nick the pro’s pro and he’s actually had his own dedicated shows on Stern 101 over the years. And he made that delicate leap between Howard’s show and that of Opie and Anthony too which not even Robin’s old comic boyfriend Jim wasn’t able to do(think he’s still on the Heavy Metal headbangers tv show as a co-host: Jim Florentine I think is his name and he’s an outstanding comic and voice artist.
