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.
The 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.
