Christian Radio Host Charged In Connection To Child Porn, Sexual Exploitation

DETROIT (AP) – A former host at a popular Christian radio station in western Michigan plans to plead guilty in a child pornography investigation.

Prosecutors say John Balyo is due in Grand Rapids federal court on Tuesday — just weeks after his arrest on state charges at a Christian music festival in Gaylord.

The 35-year-old is charged with sexual exploitation and possessing child pornography. His signed plea deal was filed in court Thursday. He faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison.
