ALL ACCESS ears in TAMPA are glued to BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE, who's having fun with his return to the market. Speaking on BEASLEY BROADCASTING's WHFS-F/TAMPA-ST. PETERSBURG.
As ALL ACCESS reported YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 1/29), BTLS began taunting competitors in the market, saying he would take "THE BONE down 80% and THE EAGLE down 50%" if he doesn't get a $15 million payment from COX by 9a TOMORROW (1/30).
TODAY, he continued, saying "MONDAY is the biggest red letter day of our careers."
He explained the upcoming radio war would have "the same dynamic as THE POWER PIG vs Q105," and he went on to say the fight was between "the big egos, with the stale format, and all the money vs. the little guy," adding "it's going to be very revolutionary and groundbreaking" with the quickest takedown ever --within 90 days."
In a nod to POWER PIG tactics, BTLS called the COX front desk, asked for VP/Market Mgr. KEITH LAWLESS -- got put through to his voicemail, and left a message extending the $15 million dollar ransom he had boasted about YESTERDAY -- offering to stay off the air in TAMPA for two years, "because that's about how much the two stations I'm gonna destroy bill in that time period -- THE BONE and EAGLE."
He concluded TODAY's taunt, saying he extended the ransom demand, "so they can't say we didnt give 'em a chance."
