Cox Media Group said Friday the station will discontinue airing the Bubba the Love Sponge Show effective immediately. "We appreciate everything the Bubba the Love Sponge Show has done for us over the past six years," said Keith Lawless, Tampa vice president and market manager for Cox Media Group. "We now are taking the station in a different direction." Cox Media Group will continue to provide technical support to the Bubba Radio Network through the end 2014. The Bubba the Love Sponge Show will continue to be aired on stations in Ocala, Fort Myers, Fort Walton Beach, Orlando, Charleston, S.C. and Reno, Nev. Starting Tuesday, the Bone will replace Bubba with the Mike Calta Show from 6 to 10 a.m. Calta previously held the afternoon spot, which will be taken by In Your Face with Drew Garabo from 3 to 7 p.m. In June, Cox signed Calta to a five-year contract.
