Bubba Beats The News Outlets
In a related matter, a writer for MEDIAITE.COM noted that BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE was the first broadcaster to report on the deaths of two police officers last MONDAY and the arrest of HYDRA LACY. JR. "What, then, does it say about you if you get your breaking news from BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE on THE BONE 102.5?" MARK JOYELLA asked.
"When two police officers were shot and killed MONDAY, BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE ... devoted his entire morning radio show to the unfolding story, and in the process beat the mainstream TAMPA and ST. PETE journalists on the big story."
