Tampa’s Classic Rock WHPT 102.5 FM will switch to an all talk format beginning on Monday April 23 and be rebranded “The Bone. Real. Raw. Radio”. The station will be the first all FM talker in the Tampa Bay radio market.
Bubba “The Love Sponge” will continue as morning man on the new “Bone”. The “Cowhead” show will remain in afternoon drive. Added to the lineup is the “Nick and Artie” show hosted by comedian Nick DiPaolo and former Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange in the 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. slot. Other shows are being considered by station management to fill out the rest of the broadcast day.
