Welcome to Bubba Radio Network®

 

When not broadcasting to the masses, Bubba the Love Sponge® spends his time at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida. Not only is he the owner but he also is very hands on with the business of this legendary 3/8 mile dirt track.

Bubba consistently attracts press coverage in a wide variety of media, whether for his provocative on-air opinions and activities, or for comments made by his guests, who tend to speak more freely on his show. In fall 2007 Bubba made national headlines for detaining a suicidal caller to his show for nearly an hour until police could locate the man, separate him from his gun, and get him help. During the same time period, Baltimore Oriole Aubrey Huff was roundly criticized for candid remarks he made about baseball on Bubba’s show. Bubba is a regular guest on FOX 13 TV/Tampa’s 11 pm news segment “Lightning Round,” and, in addition to the radio industry media, has been extensively interviewed or quoted for media outlets including CNN Headline News’ Showbiz Tonight, People magazine, TMZ.com, E! True Hollywood Story and many more.

The raucous DVDs Bubba Raw®1, Bubba Raw®2 and Bubba Raw®3 have been released by IVD Exclusives, and have experienced great sales nationwide at retail locations and online. The DVD’s feature uncut, uncensored, behind-the-scenes video footage culled from thousands of hours of on-air and off-air show antics

Bubbapalooza, the live comedy & entertainment show featuring Bubba and his radio show’s co-hosts debuted in Ft. Myers, Florida in October 2007. Due to popular demand, Bubbapalooza has since been presented at The Celebrity Theatre, Phoenix; The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas; Star Plaza Theatre, Merrillville, IN; Mark G. Etess Arena at Trump Taj Mahal, Atlantic City, NJ; The Agora, Cleveland, OH; The Fillmore Detroit; the historic Florida Theatre in Jacksonville; The Palace Theater in Pittsburgh, PA; Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts New Orleans, LA. Attendance at every venue is outstanding, with $149 VIP tickets that include premium seating and a pre-show meet-and-greet selling out in minutes.

Bubba attracts hordes whenever he makes personal appearances, whether at racing shows, charity events such as his “Toys for Ta-Tas” donations drive, or his much-reported visits to the AVN Awards and Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, where he is an invited awards presenter and celebrity event host.

His involvement in racing now includes owning his own race team, CRI (Clem Racing, Inc.), The team’s main driver is Bubba’s son Tyler and they compete across the US, and have corporate sponsorships with 1-800 ASK GARY, Miller Lite, K&N Filters, Bell, Oakley, Wing House, Ferrera Racing Components, Rocket Chassis and many more. Tyler is one of the youngest drivers to enjoy development deals with Stewart/ Hass Racing, Tony Stewart’s NASCAR racing team. Bubba was the invited Grand Marshal for the nationally-televised Aaron's 312 NASCAR race at Talladega Superspeedway in April 2009.

The Bubba the Love Sponge® Foundation, formed as a 501 (c) Florida charity in late 2008, has raised over $500,000 dollars for charity with a focus on providing financial assistance for the families of slain or seriously injured law enforcement officers in the line of duty. Fund raising events include the annual Tampa Event titled “Bubba's Bikes for Badges" charity ride and poker run. Bubba continues to donate proceeds from many other events held to raise awareness and provide funds for community victims and related causes.

Bubba’s fans across the US, known as the “Bubba Army,” are avid purchasers of Bubba merchandise including clothing, CDs, DVDs, iTunes downloads, truck mud flaps, and limited edition CDs. Bubba merchandise has been purchased by fans in all 50 states and Canada, with concentrations in markets such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tampa, Sacramento, San Diego, Edmonton, Calgary, Jacksonville and Pittsburgh, to name a few. A full time staff of four is utilized to handle the preparation and fulfillment of nearly 50,000 annual orders. The reach and popularity of the “Bubba Army” cannot be underestimated, as “Bubba Army” clothing has been spotted on members of such popular TV shows as Ice Road Truckers, Ax Men, Hogan Knows Best, and Brooke Knows Best.
