    Former talk show host Bernie Ward sentenced to more than seven years in prison

    With his sobbing family looking on in a San Francisco courtroom, former KGO radio host Bernie Ward today completed his tumble from one of the Bay Area's most popular liberal voices on the local airwaves to a pariah caught up in the world of online child pornography.

    Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker sentenced Ward to seven years and three months in federal prison, calling the disgraced celebrity a "troubled individual'' whose downfall is a "personal tragedy.'' Ward now must turn himself in to U.S. Marshals by noon Friday to begin his prison term.
    Ward filled KGO's airwaves for three hours every night, an outspoken liberal who took on the Iraq war, conservative causes and President George W. Bush. He also hosted the station's "God Talk'' show on Sunday mornings, now hosted by San Jose State professor Brent Waters, who plans to discuss the child pornography issue on this Sunday's show. KGO fired Ward after the child porn charges came to light.

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    When I first read this I thought Robin went to prison.:o

    Heh heh, too bad for Bernie "The Hutt" Ward. Yeah, he was on for 3 hours a night....10pm to 1am. Not many listeners up at that time of night...listeners with jobs that is.
