Bubba the Love Sponge Clem returned to the Tampa Bay airwaves Monday morning — on WHFS-98.7 FM, as was expected. He and his on-air cohorts spent their first few hours hurling taunts and insults at his morning show rival, Mike “Cowhead” Calta, who took Clem’s spot at WHPT-102.5 “The Bone.”
The two personalities, who characterize themselves as bitter enemies, spoke by phone on the air. According to Clem, Calta said on the radio that he would punch Clem in his “fat face.”
Bubba confirmed some things that have been widely reported, and offered a few further details. Cox fired him (not his words) in August and paid him his “seven-figure” compensation to stay off the air until Dec. 31.
