Former CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WTKS-F (REAL RADIO 104.1)/ORLANDO midday host SHANNON BURKE's wife now tells the ORLANDO SENTINEL that the shooting incident in which her husband allegedly shot a bullet that grazed her after hitting their dog in the leg was an accident and that she is calling off her divorce filing. CATHERINE BURKE told the paper, "I love SHANNON BURKE, always have, always will. I am committed to being his wife," adding that she believes that her husband has embraced GOD.
SHANNON BURKE is free on $25,000 bond and facing charges from the APRIL 30th incident, which he maintained was an accident but about which his wife initially gave a different story. He is attending a court-ordered outpatient rehab program and presently prohibited by court order from direct contact with his wife.
