May 8, 2008 at 3:14 PM (PT)
NEWMAN MEDIA Hot AC WNFB (MIX 94.3)/GAINESVILLE-OCALA, FL morning show with JACK & STEPHANIE WILEY recently commented on NORTH LAUDERDALE, FL CITY COMMISSIONER RICH MOYLAN's proposal to split FLORIDA into two separate states with a boundary at the PALM BEACH COUNTY line. JACK & STEPHANIE asked listeners to call in with name suggestions for the new state. Top suggestions include:
"FLUBA" -- A combination of FLORIDA and CUBA.
"SOUTH YORKAVANA" -- SOUTH NEW YORK, to honor the large NEW YORK population and the large CUBAN-AMERICAN population.
"SILICONE VALLEY" -- Yes, it's already in use, but listeners felt the name reflected on the large numbers of citizens with breast augmentation, and other forms of cosmetic surgery.
"NEW JERSADELPHIA" -- A combination of both NEW JERSEY and PHILADELPHIA transplants to the area.
Suggestions were sent to COMMISSIONER MOYLAN, who has been invited to join the morning show for an interview.
