BURKE told the court that he has since gone into ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS and is in recovery; he presently hosts a brokered weekend show on SALEM Talk WORL-A/ORLANDO.
BURKE is scheduled to start serving his six month sentence for an animal cruelty charge on DECEMBER 31st in a plea bargain reached last month. His sentencing for the probation violation will be held on JANUARY 5th.
