Bobby Bones quitting: Someone in Nashville paying big to make it happen

See also

Bobby Bones has had quite a week already and now he finds out someone in Nashville really wants him to “go away.” Just a few days ago, Bobby Bones announced via Twitter that he might be leaving radio to pursue another job offer. Just a day later, the host of The Bobby Bones Show returned to Twitter to let fans know he was staying put after all. Just as the excitement was dying down, on February 4 Bobby Bones’ Twitter lit up with discussion over billboards going up in Nashville that say, “Go away Bobby Bones.”

The morning show host sent his trusty sidekick Lunchbox out to the scene to investigate a caller’s claims that the billboards were showing up alongside Highway 24 in Nashville. Sure enough, Lunchbox reported from the scene that the billboards were real.

Via Twitter, Bobby Bones responded with:

well. i can confirm. its not a hoax. what the hell

and

Ive never had a billboard in my life. in Wichita they put one up about me for good. In Nashville someone trashes me on one. what a day!

It was found that a total of four billboards were purchased by a client called “Anti Bobby Bones” and are each set to line the highways for a three week stretch.

It’s unclear whether the billboard purchaser was already anti Bobby Bones and had planned the billboards all along or if Bobby’s recent possibility of leaving radio, then his decision to refuse the other job offer, upset somebody enough to voice their opinion that they wish he had left.

Whatever the case, Bobby Bones sure has had quite a week–and all this while battling a cold and drinking down mega doses of, in his words, “crazy cough syrup.”
