Mike “Cowhead” Calta, afternoon host on Tampa's WHPT-FM The Bone has just signed a new 3-year deal with the Cox owned station. And, when Radio Ink Editor-in-Chief Ed Ryan called him to discuss the new arrangement, he did what any good radio guy would do...he put him on the air. Here's the exchange.

RADIO INK EDITOR ED RYAN GOES LIVE ON THE AIR WITH COWHEAD 

Cowhead does very well in the ratings for Cox. And, as you heard in our interview, he wouldn't reveal his salary to us. He did say he'd be making the kind of money a rookie baseball player would be making. And, like any good reporter would do, we looked it up. The Major League Baseball minimum salary is about $400,000 or so a year. So, if true, that's not a bad buck for someone living and working only an our from happiest place on earth. Cowhead has been on the air in Tampa since the early 90's. For the past five years, The Cowhead Show has broadcast from 102.5 FM The Bone.
