Former WTKS-FM (Real Radio 104.1)/Orlando midday host Shannon Burke is preparing a return to the airwaves. He's buying a 2-hour slot on 1kw WORL-AM (660)/Orlando for a show on Saturdays. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Burke is selling commericials to air during the program, which the newspaper says is expected to air for at least 12 weeks.
Last May, Burke was arrested on charges related to shooting both his wife and her dog and he faces charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Clear Channel terminated Burke's contract after he was arrested. He was released on $25,000 bail, with orders to get psychological help and stay away from drugs, alcohol, guns and his wife. (10-08-09)
