BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE will be the voice of "HULK HOGAN'S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING," a new reality series set to debut this FALL on CMT. BUBBA, whose show airs on SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO and, separately, on COX RADIO Classic Rock WHPT (102.5 THE BONE)/TAMPA and WFYV/JACKSONVILLE, will provide play-by-play and serve as announcer for the show, which features HOGAN, a close friend of BUBBA's and the best man at his wedding, teaching 10 celebrities the ins and outs of pro wrestling.
HOGAN said, "BUBBA has been one of my closest friends for well over ten years, and has dabbled in the wrestling biz with me for about as long. When asked if I had anyone in mind to be the announcer, my eyes lit up and I yelled out loud, 'BUBBA!'"
"I am so honored to be a part of this project," said BUBBA. "With wrestling legends like HULK HOGAN and (co-producer and former WCW executive) ERIC BISCHOFF heading it, HULK HOGAN'S CELEBRITY CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING is sure to be something that all of AMERICA will want to see, and to be a part of it is a dream come true for me."
