“Roger & JP are a great fit for the BONE and the Tampa Market,” said Director of Branding and Programming John Brennan. “The team is excited to have them, and we’re looking forward to a fresh sound in Tampa Bay.”

Prior to joining the Bone lineup, Roger (Luce) and John “JP” Parise have entertained listeners in the morning on WBAB with male-driven, aggressive hot-talk.

“We’ve wanted to work in Tampa and at THE BONE for a long time,” said Roger and JP. “Joining THE BONE family with Mike Calta and Drew Garabo, we feel it’s a great team 

and can’t wait to start.  Our goal is to become Tampa radio fixtures for many years to come.  By the way, we both canceled trips to Hawaii for this gig, so it better be awesome!”
