Anthony Cumia’s as yet unnamed network is expanding again.
On Wednesday, on The Anthony Cumia Show, Anthony announced that Gavin McInnes will be hosting a show on his paid subscription network. McInnes will host his show on Mondays and Thursdays. The news comes shortly after Cumia added The Legion of Skanks podcast to his network, which broadcasts on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
McInnes should fit in well on Cumia’s network, as he is accustomed to stirring up controversy. McInnes, who is a co-founder of VICE, faced huge backlash last summer after he wrote a piece entitled “Transphobia Is Perfectly Natural” for Thought Catalog. Shortly after it was published, McInnes was pushed out of his job at Rooster, an ad agency he co-founded.
McInnes, who makes regular appearances on Fox News, is also a fit for Cumia’s penchant for pushing free speech that may offend. Last month, McInnes claimed on Fox that women earn less money than men, because they are “less ambitious.” In a debate on the same subject on HuffPost Live, McInnes told a female University of Miami Law Professor that she was a “fucking idiot.” The book, What Was The Hipster? quotes McInnes as saying: “I love being white and I think it’s something to be very proud of … I don’t want our culture diluted. We need to close the borders now and let everyone assimilate to a Western, white, English-speaking way of life.”
Cumia called McInness a perfect fit telling McInness he is “unpredictable, volatile and people like to not like what you say.” McInness says he is looking to help out the victims of the Social Justice Warriors through his show and his contributions to media.
In a press statement Cumia added that he chose to welcome McInnes onto his platform because, “there’s really very few places where someone like Gavin can speak honestly and speak his mind without having some kind of problem and repercussion.” He said that McInnes provides for the network “a twisted, unique view of things that are in the news.”
Cumia also announced that his new New York City located studio is expected to be up and running in August; and hinted at a possible time shift of his own show to a morning drive time. Cumia currently runs his show out of a studio he built in the basement of his Long Island home.
Gavin McInnes’s show premieres on Mondays and will air live at 9:30pm every Monday and Thursday.
