Bubba Starts January 9 As Howard 101 Afternoon Drive Deejay

Monday, December 12, 2005

Back in September it was announced that Bubba "The Love Sponge" Clem would be joining Howard Stern's new Sirius empire. Now Clem has revealed more details about his impending jump to satellite radio. Speaking to the St. Petersburg Times, he announced that he will start on "Howard 101" on January 9, doing afternoon drive.

"At the end of the day . . . Howard Stern chose me first," Clem told the Times. "Howard and I are on the ground level of the next big thing in radio. When [satellite radio] does blow up - we'll be the pioneers. And Howard was the only person who has given us an opportunity."

Clem said he had been negotiating a deal at Sirius originally when he was taken off the air early in 2004, but it was put on hold, likely due to their talks with Stern at the same time. He will operate from his home base in Tampa, FL, having built a $250,000 studio (complete with stripper's pole) nearby the city's airport, where he will also film his shows for DVD release.

Much like Stern, Clem is promising a return to form on satellite radio. "We're going to do the kind of radio we used to do," he told the Times, "I'm not going to go buck wild. But if I have a girl in there and say "Whip out your milk dispensers,' I can say that without worrying."
