Bubba Bo Is Back
Bubba Bo says credits former Q102 morning show personality Jim "Squirrel" Stadtmiller, now a Clear Channel salesman, for his return to the America's Trucking Network overnight show last weekend. Eric "Bubba Bo" Boulanger was axed at the end of December in a budget cut, and reruns aired for three weekends.
Bubba Bo says Squirrel "knows that seven nights a week of live programming is more attractive to clients than five nights live and two nights replays. Thanx also goes to Lee Webb of IdleBusters, the biggest ATN sponsor. He understands the importance of seven nights of live programming in reaching the potential purchasers of his product, an alternative power unit for semis. He'll pay me directly.
"As for me, I'm pleased to -- once again -- be a small part of WLW's all-star lineup and to -- once again -- be the weekend overnight companion of truck drivers who are an overworked, underpaid and overlooked yet vital link to our economy."
