It was just a mere five minues before SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO/HOWARD 101 evening host BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE was about to unload on CLEAR CHANNEL, when management from his former company contacted SIRIUS management and threatened legal action.
There was no secret what BUBBA was planning to do on MARCH 1st, following the expiration of his contract with CLEAR CHANNEL. Promos had been running on HOWARD 101 since JANUARY 9th.

Bubba To Hit Tampa Airwaves On 97X
Meanwhile, BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE has agreed to do an interview on his former TAMPA competitor, COX Alternative WSUN (97X) on MARCH 9th on "THE MORNING X WITH FISHER AND BOY" at 7a. It will be the first time since his firing from CLEAR CHANNEL Active Rock WXTB (98ROCK) on FEBRUARY 23, 2004 that BUBBA will be on the TAMPA BAY radio.
97X PD MICHAEL SHARKEY (aka SHARK) said, "97X is giving BUBBA the chance to say goodbye to his listeners, which he never got a chance to do. This is radio history. We are welcoming a former direct rival to our airwaves to speak his mind."
