Bubba The Love Sponge Renews Contract With Sirius XM
The Bubba Army can all breathe easy today as a very credible inside source has given us the heads up that Bubba The Love Sponge will be staying on Howard 101, where he belongs. What was to be Bubba’s last show can be heard today on ch.101 starting at 10 am… I’m sure it will interesting to say the least.
There is no official word from Sirius XM yet so, you will have to stay tuned for details but, it is safe to say that management has officially avoided the next huge mistake.
UPDATE: Howard Stern called in to the show at just after 10 am to confirm that Bubba has signed a two year deal with Sirius XM.
They bash the company for weeks and then they get signed. Bubba would be nothing if it wasn’t for satellite radio putting him back on the air when no one wanted him.
Sirius XM has no PRIDE and Bubba has no CLASS. These talk shows could care less about the survival of the company as long as they get PAID. I don’t see Howard chipping in for Bubba or restructuring his deal during tough times. I love his show, but doesn’t it make you sick when he wants millions and the share price is at $0.15!
The “Revolution”, my a**……It should be join the “Destruction of a company”.
Thanks for the reporting!
Go back to listening to O&A then…
Paying Bubba and gang isn’t the problem. if you want to see the destruction of the companies look no further than the millions thrown at Martha, Oprah, Maddog Russo. Who listens to Martha, and Oprah radio which doesn’t even have Oprah?
Are you kidding?? Bubba not worth nothing?? I think you better check your fact boy! Bubba was on XM before he was on Sirius and even before he was syndcated in alot of cities outside florida. Sirius was just in signing Bubba to another contract. Man…you must be jelous!
I have been listening to the show from the first day Bubba joined Sirius. Bubba was out of work before he was signed by XM. By the way, “SATELLITE RADIO”, does not just mean “SIRIUS”!
He has been trashing Sirius for weeks! You don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
Let him go back to terrestrial radio and his small syndicated markets, and he will miss his national attention & exposure. As terrestrial radio continues their path to death, he will come crawling back! Then you pay him half of what he is making NOW! Martha, Oprah, & Maddog Russo were mistakes, and now you can add Bubba.
If Sirius continues to pay “up” for talent, this site will have to change it’s name.
If they do not pay “up” for talent this site will have to change its name. The talent is what separates them from terrestrial.
Bubba went back to terrestrial and was #1 in his markets in a matter of weeks and was then syndicated in a bunch more markets months later. Like him or not, that is talent.
Charles, when do they stop?
I do not question talent, actually Manson is really talented. I question “value”. The Jason Ellis show is also talent, but I will assume that it is at a fraction of the cost.
This talent has run Sirius/XM into the ground. They were supposed to be profitable at 1 million subs, 2 million subs, and so on.
Actually lets do some quick math. If he was signed for 2 years at 3 million per year, then assume $13 per subscriber Bubba would only need 230,769.23 subscribers to be profitable. The 3 mil is probably high but that is Russo money, previously Bubba was paid about 1 million a year. Looking at the math Bubba is making Sirius money. I am pretty sure that all of the other big names on Sirius expect Howard and the ones who are killing the company.
Do you know how much his deal was for? I haven’t seen any numbers made public yet so, I will reserve my judgment until I am fully informed.
That is the “rib”, or whatever you want to call it. They never disclosed what they were making, but they will sit and bitch for hours that Sirius is screwing them.
2 YEAR contracts….now that is funny! They should loop that press release on the comedy channels.
On another note, happy holidays and keep up the good work.
Bubba is a fat piece of crap! Brent is a paranoid conspiracy loon who needs an upgrade on his meds. Manson is a follower and a leader of none. Ned rocks! And Spice needs to grow up and stop being a poser of Paul Oakenfold…LOL! Seriously dude, get out your glow sticks and rave till the morning dawn!
I guess kicking and screaming like a little B**** will get you what you want in the end.
This show can not touch Howard’s.
So what he was on XM before? XM was a joke. He also lost that job when he got fired. He is in one city outside of Florida and that’s Richmond and in case you have never been to Richmond, VA, it’s not exactly a Bubba type city.
Think about it..he has trouble selling out 2500 seat venues for his Bubbapoolooza….yet somehow Sirius was going to be doomed if they didn’t sign him? LOL!
You sure do know a lot about the show… why do you listen if its so crappy?
Like it or not, he is still #1 in his market on terrestrial.
It never used to be crappy until the election stuff and then there constant crying about their contract….
Who cares? A monkey could be #1 on terrestial in any market…
He’s not #1 in Richmond, nor won’t he….
He’s not #1 in Jacksonville, but #2…get your facts straight…
Big deal…he’s #1 in Tampa…for two reasons: Howard and he’s from Tampa and is known commodity down there…give me a break!
You’re right, he has no talent. It’s amazing that he is not bagging groceries. I am surprised he can even utter words with his level of retardation. Why would HOWARD STERN have chosen him of all people? Howard Stern must be losing his mind, I guess he should retire.
BTW…He is not from Tampa (although he now lives in the area), and Howard is not big in the south… get your facts straight.
first of all js, get your facts straight, bubba was on xm when he got fired from clear channel! i know because i was a listener!
2nd , if all of the people on here are so against bubba & his show simply change the channel !! thats the beauty of sat. radio! turn over & listen to o&a , or whatever u call good radio ?!
