Christian radio host charged in sex probe


GAYLORD, Mich. (AP) — A host at a Christian radio station in
Grand Rapids has been arrested on a charge of first-degree criminal
sexual conduct.
Authorities say John Balyo of WCSG was arrested
Friday at a Christian music festival in Gaylord. He’s being transported
to Battle Creek to face the charge Monday in a Calhoun County court.
35-year-old Balyo is accused of paying another man to arrange sex with
minors. Authorities searched his home in Caledonia, south of Grand
Rapids. It’s not known if he has a lawyer yet.
WCSG is a Christian
station affiliated with Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids. General
Manager Chris Lemke says the staff is "shocked and deeply saddened" by
Balyo’s arrest.
He promises to say more on the radio Monday morning.
