JVC Orlando Director of Programming Len Shackelford lends more info on Florida Man Radio, “This will be a personality driven talk station focused on Central Florida. There will be NO topics off limits, including topics specifically about our on-air staff. Think sports, politics, pop culture… if you talk about it in your life or on social media, Florida Man Radio 660 AM and 105.5 FM will talk about it.”

“With Bubba the Love Sponge Clem hosting morning drive, Scott Ledger’s Dangerous Conversations in midday, Shannon Burke in afternoon drive, and Attorney Justin Clark’s You Have Power from 6pm-7pm, Florida Man Radio will be must-listen radio every day” says JVC’s EVP Shane Reeve.

“The great talent and notoriety of our hosts will wake up talk radio in Orlando. Florida Man Radio will prove that there can still be creativity and real topics discussed on Orlando radio that affect each and every one of us.”

“This is exactly what radio needs right now, fresh, new, funny and local this is ‘Florida Man Radio”, said JVC’s CEO John Caracciolo.

“The vision of a locally based talk station that isn’t afraid to confront the big topics while not taking it too seriously, screams the mantra of JVC. We aren’t afraid to buck the norms – keeping live and local radio working for our clients and listeners, providing great results for clients, and continuing to invest in great programming. I’m thrilled for the future of our stations across the country.”

JVC recently acquired the frequencies from Salem Media Group for $900,000. It also owns Country WOTW 103.1 FM The Wolf.  It also programs a rock format on translator W231CT, branding as Bud 94.1 FM,  However, iHeartMedia is scheduled to take over the translator on October 1.
