Bubba the Love Sponge

Bubba the Love Sponge® (born Todd Clem), is a native of Warsaw, Indiana who began his radio career in 1986 at WPFR in Terre Haute while he was in college. By age 25, he was doing morning hit radio in Chicago and also has broadcast or been syndicated in Grand Rapids, MI; Milwaukee, WI; Philadelphia, PA; Toledo, OH; San Diego, CA; Columbus, OH; Cincinnati, OH; San Antonio, TX; Tampa, FL; Orlando, FL; West Palm Beach, FL; Macon, GA; Wichita, KS; Shreveport, LA; Ft. Myers, FL; Jacksonville, FL, and Hartford, CT, for which he earned multiple awards from Billboard and Radio & Records, including four consecutive R&R DJ of the Year awards and six Billboard Rock Air Personality of the Year awards.

In 1999 he legally changed his name to the trademarked Bubba the Love Sponge®, a nickname given to him by a former fellow DJ which appears as such on his passport and driver’s license. His name recognition and popularity grew as the Bubba the Love Sponge® Show became syndicated throughout the US, and he became a top-rated media figure operating out of the Tampa Bay area.

In 2004, Bubba lost his job in terrestrial radio due to widely-publicized crackdowns on “indecency.” During his time off, Bubba made headlines when he ran for sheriff of Pinellas County, Florida in 2004. Although unsuccessful in his bid, he garnered 30% of the vote. Bubba was able to keep the entire show staff together until Howard Stern brought him to Sirius Satellite Radio in 2006 to be part of his groundbreaking new lineup, where he remains today. In addition, the Bubba Radio Network returned to terrestrial radio in Tampa in Jan. 2008 with a bang, jumping instantly to #1 in most major demos, where he still reigns today. Bubba is currently ranked #52 on TALKERS magazine’s prestigious “Heavy Hundred” list of the top national talk radio personalities.

Bubba maintains a longtime team of loyal co-hosts and producers, who bring a wide range of talents to the show: Executive producer/co-host Brent Hatley, audio production and impersonation wizard Manson, radio’s oldest and crankiest pervert, Ned, and Tara, Bubba’s ball busting sister. Listeners are equally familiar with and entertained by Bubba staffers such as Chaz, Carl Harris, the Woodsman, Hammil, Tom the Treeman, and more. Bubba broadcasts from his own, private, custom-built radio broadcast and audio/video production facility in Tampa.

Bubba’s off-air interests, such as race car driving, enjoy a prominent place on his show, which has become the “go to” place for people who are interested in fast cars and bikes, hot women, captivating sports, compelling guests, and humorous, real-world political discourse of the “Bubba” kind. His 6-year-old car racing son, Tyler, and his mother “Janiecakes” are frequently heard on Bubba’s shows and are popular figures with fans.

Bubba is respected for his ability to attract and maintain audiences with his lightning-quick mind and tongue, his sharp sense of humor, his everyman approach to many non-traditional radio topics, and for the unique lingo he often uses on-air, which fans refer to as “Bubbaspeak.” Fans of the show are known nationwide as the “Bubba Army,” and are very active in participating in functions and calls to action, where it is not uncommon to have thousands show their strength and support for the show.

Leroy

PART TIME MALE ROMPER MODEL AND FULL TIME PANCAKE CONNOISSEUR; LEROY GRADUATED AT THE BOTTOM OF HIS CLASS FROM UMATILLA HIGH SCHOOL (GO BULLDOGS!!!) AND GOT HIS BROADCASTING DEGREE AT "THE" STRIPMALL IN ASTOR.

WHEN LEROY ISN'T BUSY LOWERING THE EXPECTATIONS OF UPPER MANAGEMENT AND EATING HIS FEELINGS, HE CAN BE FOUND SPENDING TIME WITH HIS BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER AND RUNNING AROUND TOWN ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS WITH THE OCALA RUNNERS CLUB.

LEROY ALSO JUST LEARNED THAT IT'S POOR FORM TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS AS IT SIGNIFIES YELLING. REST ASSURED THAT HE ISN'T ANGRY, JUST UNSMART.
