BERNIE WARD tells the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE that CITADEL Talk KGO-A/SAN FRANCISCO has fired him.
WARD was removed from the air in DECEMBER after he was charged by a federal grand jury with two counts of child pornography, and he says that his contract was formally terminated at the end of the year but that "I'm still hoping they're going to rehire me. I just keep hoping people will see that this is about something that happened three years ago and that I had a reason for doing it. I showed some very bad judgment, but I'm hoping that common sense will prevail."
I'm still hoping they're going to rehire me.
The longtime host of an evening show and the weekend "GOD TALK" show at KGO, WARD claimed at the time of the charges that he had obtained the photos on his computer as part of research for a book on "hypocrisy."
