Doug Vanderlaan, of Jacksonville, Fla., didn't like what he was hearing on the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show. For two years he waged a campaign to get Bubba and all his lewd talk off the air, Jane Akre reports in Orlando Weekly. The result: Bubba was fired, his station (owned by Clear Channel) was hit with the largest fine in Federal Communications Commission history, and Clear Channel got on its knees before Congress.
