GEORGE CROSSLEY, a host at STAR OVER ORLANDO Talk WEUS-A/ORLANDO, died WEDNESDAY evening after collapsing at the station, reports the ORLANDO SENTINEL.
CROSSLEY, a former preacher who most recently served as the host of the "PEOPLE POWER REVOLUTION" 6-8p (ET) weekdays on WEUS, was best known for his conviction on charges he tried to hire a hit man to kill the husband of his former mistress in 1996; the preacher, whose reputation before the incident was as a cultural conservative and moralist, served 40 months in prison for the crime. Upon his release, he changed his positions to more liberal stances and eventually became the leader of the CENTRAL FLORIDA chapter of the ACLU.
