Looks like Christmas has come early for Mike "Cowhead" Calta, who was just named morning personality at 98Rock WXTB-97.9 FM -- taking the spot once held by his former boss, Bubba the Love Sponge.

Cowhead has had some rough luck recently, from a legal battle with Bubba over the rights to his name -- Bubba now says he offered Cowhead a spot on his new satellite radio show -- to losing his morning gig at WYUU-FM when the station went to a Spanish-language format.

Now he's been given a shot in the big leagues, up against the popular MJ morning show on WFLZ, Orlando at Wild 98.7 WLLD, and the oldsters on WFLA-970 AM -- Jack Harris, Tedd Webb and Sharon Taylor. Wonder if he'll be killing any animals live on air, like his former boss?
