Shannon Burke Plans Return To Radio
June 21, 2010 at 4:22 AM (PT)
Having been released from jail (NET NEWS 5/13), former WTKS (REAL RADIO 104.1)/ORLANDO midday host SHANNON BURKE tells the ORLANDO SENTINEL's SCOTT MAXWELL that he will be back on the air in JULY. BURKE did not specify what station would air his new show, but said it would be "conservative Talk in the middays."
BURKE served almost two months on probation violation charges that followed four months on animal cruelty and firearms charges stemming from the APRIL 2009 shooting incident that wounded his wife and dog. He most recently hosted a brokered SATURDAY show 2-4p on SALEM Talk WORL-A/ORLANDO.
[Is BURKE just another bad boy -- or is there a pattern of problems with conservative Talk show hosts? Let us know what you think below.]
