Bubba The Love Sponge® adds “Spice” to the new 102.5 The Bone!!!

April 19th, 2012 by Staff


Tampa, Florida – The Bubba Radio Network® is pleased to announce that long time member of the Bubba The Love Sponge® Show, Matt “Spice” Loyd will join the airstaff at the New 102.5 The Bone to host a talk show weekdays from 7 PM to 10 PM, effective Monday April 23rd 2012.

Matt “Spice” Loyd joined the Bubba Radio Network® as an intern in 1998. Through hard work, dedication and with Bubba The Love Sponge® as a mentor, he was able to learn all the key aspects necessary to become a successful radio broadcaster.  As his skills increased and his talents were exposed and developed he was rapidly promoted up the ladder from his internship to the full time producer/on air co-host position he holds today. Spice has been an integral part of the Bubba Radio Network® and a major contributor to the success of the nationally syndicated Bubba The Love Sponge® Show.

“I’m very proud of “Spice”, seeing him grow into the broadcaster he is today has been nothing short of amazing,” said Bubba The Love Sponge® Clem, “It is very gratifying to have another Bubba protégé on the all talk station line up for the new 102.5 The Bone.  He has my full support and I look forward to his show succeeding in this new, exciting, format.”

“I want to thank Bubba & the crew for an amazing experience and thank them for their support,” Matt “Spice” Loyd said, “Over the last 15 years we became more than co-workers, we are Family. I’ve learned a lot and I hope to bring that experience to my own show. Having an FM talk show is truly a dream come true.”

The Bubba Radio Network® is a nationally syndicated morning talk show heard terrestrially on WHPT 102.5 The Bone in Tampa FL, WRXK 96.1 KROCK Ft. Myers FL, WYBB 98.1 98 Rock Charleston, SC and the featured talk programming on Radioio.com and in Sony Home on the PlayStation® 3.

    Congratulations Spice, you deserve it! You will be leaving a hole though. NO ONE can get under Bubba’s skin like you can. It was my favorite part of the show!

    I live in California and listen to the show on radioio. I am extremely bummed out that I will not be able to hear “SPICE’S JOKE HUNT” but if it is anything like “SPICE’S HAPPY HOUR” I will hear him back on the BTLS very soon. Good luck, Spice!

    Think you can get him Syndicated to Orlando? Sense you guys got taken off it’s really just been a corperate puke fest on the radio.. The only thing I’m thankful for is they do play music to offset there cheese. Spice might have better luck with the politics then Bubba. Best radio show in the country held down by the man.

    I hope it goes well Spice. I think the BTLS show will suffer for it.

    BUBBA , oh my God I miss the show, I’m from New York and used to listen every day you guys were the best good luck

    According to my sources, the show is going to be a combination: George Noory, Dr. Laura, and Kim Komando type of a format. But seriously, do some live remotes from a “gentlemen’s club”, or as you Floridians call it, a titty bar. Or how about doing a remote with your buddies drinking, eating, and more drinking for a couple of hours? I’d tune in for that.

    Listened to the Bubba show today and was going to purchase Radio IO. The show is not half as good without Spice Boy and now not worth paying for. Very sad, BTLS will never be as good as it was.

  22. Cmp

    I am sue your sister is an awesome sister and a great person. she however is not a replacement for Spice Boy. There were two people that when not on the show drastically reduced the quality, Bubba and Spice.
    Your show is sadly not worth paying for now.

    Good Luck Spice! Bubba’s show won’t be the same without the Counter Programmer Extrordinaire

    Bum Fuck, Saskatchewan
