    Bubba to announce new show format Monday
    10 News Staff, WTSP6:42 a.m. EST February 2, 2015

    Tampa, Florida -- Bubba the Love Sponge and the Beasley Broadcasting Group have come to an agreement on the format for the BTLS's new home – 98.7 FM WHFS -- and will make the announcement during the 9 a.m. hour of his show on Monday, Feb. 2.

    Bubba and his crew – Manson, 25 Cent and Nedley Mandingo III – returned to the Tampa airwaves last month following a four-month hiatus.

    Bubba The Love Sponge back on the air in Tampa Bay


    The St. Petersburg-based station has been replaying the BTLS 6-10 a.m. morning show the rest of the day as Bubba and Beasley went back and forth about its direction.

    "It's unlike anything else that's ever been done before," explained Bubba when discussing what the other elements of the station will be.

    All this week, listeners have heard possible format options and station nicknames. Bubba and his crew have solicited feedback over the airwaves and through social media.

    The Bubba Radio Network is based in Tampa and is heard on 10 stations from West Palm Beach to Reno, Nevada.

    • Bubba The Love Sponge Flips WHFS To WBRN 'Bubba 98.7, No Rules Radio'

      New Format

      BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE, who's been having fun with his return to the market, unveiled the new format on BEASLEY BROADCASTING WHFS-F/TAMPA-ST. PETERSBURG as BUBBA 98.7 "No Rules Radio," with new calls on the way of WBRN.

      CARL HARRIS will serve as the station’s PD, and can be reached at carl.harris@bbgi.com.

      The music, BUBBA told listeners this morning, will be "anything that I like. Seriously... that's the format... it's me. It's what I like. It could be KURTIS BLOW's 'Basketball' and AC/DC's 'You Shook Me All Night Long.'" He also suggested that he could even play CW MCCALL's "Convoy" and said that other stations are programmed by corporate people, "we have ownership in this radio station. What we sez, goes."

      ALL ACCESS was told the station will include artists such as AC/DC, METALLICA, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, PEARL JAM, LED ZEPPELIN, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, LINKIN PARK, GREEN DAY and FOO FIGHTERS. Also, the format includes songs chosen by BUBBA himself which range from artists like EMINEM, NOTORIOUS B.I.G., DR DRE, JERRY REED, PUBLIC ENEMY, C.W. MCCALL, LL COOL J and many others.

      The lineup will include BUBBA 6-10a (ET), commercial-free music 10a-noon, "MANSON'S Greatest Hits," "a work in progress" with "elements" from BUBBA's sidekick MIKE "MANSON" WATERS noon-3p, and BUBBA sidekick character "NED" a/k/a "NEDLY MANDINGO III" (also played by MANSON) for afternoons 3-7p.

      EVP/Operations BRIAN BEASLEY commented, “BEASLEY has entered new territory with today’s announcement. The music, personalities and bits will all be the creative responsibility of the station’s morning show host, BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE. We hope the listeners will be thoroughly entertained by the new direction of the station.”

    Hopefully, bubba can hire Shannon for a podcast willy type of afternoon show done from his own home studio. Ned is toast from doing afternoons.
    I dont think Shannon on the BRN property will ever work.

    • Report: FBI Said Bubba's Ex-Producer 'Relevant' To Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Leak
      August 11, 2015 at 1:12 PM (PT)
    • [​IMG]
      Spice

      Former BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE producer MATT "SPICE BOY" LOYD is named in court documents as having been involved in some way with the leaking of the infamous HULK HOGAN sex tape, and FOX O&O WTVT (TV) (FOX 13)/TAMPA reports that the TAMPA POLICE have picked up the investigation of a LOS ANGELES attorney for the alleged extortion of HOGAN after the FBI closed the case.

      FOX 13 reports that the FBI ran a sting operation on attorney KEITH DAVIDSON in 2012 after HOGAN went to the Bureau with his extortion claim; the station says that the FBI has confirmed that LOYD was "relevant to the case" and has provided information to agents, but the U.S. Attorney's Office never filed charges. LOYD, who moved on to host his own show in 2012, was fired from COX RADIO Talk WHPT (102.5 THE BONE)/TAMPA in AUGUST 2013, and the reason for the firing was the subject of much speculation at the time; LOYD later testified in the lawsuit brought by TODD SCHNITT against BUBBA.

      BUBBA's show now airs on BEASLEY Rock WBRN (BUBBA 98.7)/TAMPA and in syndication.

    The broker of the video to gawker has been identified as super agent Tony Burton who works for the world famous Don Buckwald and associates.
    Yes.....that don buckwald.
    Tony burton is Mike Caltas agent. A radio rival of bubbas who is currently producing shitty radio on the bone in tampa.

    so......Spiceboy--------> Mike Calta--------->Tony Burton----> GAWKER---->
    the world.
    Sounds logical, we'll see how it all hashes out in court.
    Imo.....the only one winning here is hogans lawyer...$$$$$$
