Bubba the Love Sponge staying in radio


Yes, there were rumors published recently that he might not be back on broadcast radio, partially due to his online success. Not true, though: Bubba the Love Sponge has renewed his contract with Cox Media Group Tampa’s 102.5 FM The Bone (WHPT) effective immediately. The Bubba the Love Sponge show has been the No. 1 morning show in Tampa Bay since its return to terrestrial radio in January 2008.

“After weighing my options and much consideration, I am happy to return to The Bone,” Said Bubba. “Cox believed in me when no one else did, and I am excited to return the love. I have a great relationship with local management, and The Bone will remain my home in Tampa Bay.”

Bubba was back live on The Bone, 96.1 K-Rock in Ft. Myers, and 98Rock in Charleston on 1/4. Cast members include Bubba the Love Sponge, Manson, Brent, Spice, and Ned.
