Police busted KBMT Sports Director Lance Edwards about 5PM last Thursday, charging him with solicitation.
KBMT General Manager Paul Bergen says that Edwards was terminated after his arrest. Bergen declined to elaborate more on the circumstances.
Cops clamped the cuffs Edwards as they were conducting a prostitution sting at an Econolodge.
Edwards was released after posting a $2,500 bond.
