Bubba the Love Sponge signs three-year deal to stay with Cox Radio's WHPT

Despite rumors that he might be pulling together a deal with former employers Clear Channel Radio, top-rated Tampa Bay area radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge has signed a new, three-year deal keeping him at Cox Radio.

The agreement allows Clem to remain at Cox-owned WHPT-FM (102.5 The Bone), where officials there say he has topped ratings among male listeners and adults almost since the show began broadcasting in 2008.

Cox brought him back to free, terrestrial radio nearly five years after he was fired by Clear Channel upon earning a record $755,000 fine from the Federal Communications Commission for broadcasting skits in which cartoon characters talked about sex and drugs.
