Adam Carolla appears to be slipping into the giant, gaping hole left by Bubba the Love Sponge on Howard Stern‘s secondary Sirius XM channel Howard 101.

Adam Carolla dropped the bombshell during his January 21st podcast of The Adam Carolla Show.
“We are going to be doing a little experiment with Sirius XM and Howard Stern and the Howard Stern network over at Sirius XM–about simulcasting this show on the Sirius XM Howard Stern network while we’re doing it.”

Carolla said the “experiment’ will kick off on Monday, January 24th, with some modifications to his current podcast format.
UPDATE 1/23/11: The first Sirius XM Adam Carolla Simulcast has been delayed until Monday 1/31/11 “due to technical reasons.
“The podcast will be expanded from about 90 minutes to 2 hours,” explained Carolla. “There’s going to have to be a couple of breaks in there for commercials that they require on their end. So you’ll get an extra half hour of content with an extra few minutes for commercials. So, we’ll figure that out, but we are going to be doing a full blown show and it’s going to be simulcast and much more than that I don’t know.”

The Bubba the Love Sponge Show ran for four hours weekdays on Howard 101. It’s unclear at this point how Howard 101 will fill the additional two hours.

Carolla sought to reassure podcast fans who might worry they’ll have to subscribe to Sirius XM to get the content they’ve been getting for free.
“The podcast is not going to go away. It’s not in jeopardy of going away. It’s essentially taking the podcast and putting it on this platform. That would be something close to awesome if that works out…I think it’d be a good fit.”

Howard Stern’s Sirius XM Channel 101 has been stuck airing HSS clip shows since the new year after failing to negotiate a new contract with Bubba the Love Sponge. Bubba the Love Sponge told fans he was offered a “take it or leave it” contract featuring an 80% pay cut. The Tampa based broadcaster has now taken his show to internet radio outlet RadioIo.com
