Veteran Sports Radio Talkshow Host Arrested

A 20 year plus career in broadcasting and perhaps much more are in peril after news of Sports Radio KJR morning host Mitch Levy's arrest in a Bellevue prostitution sting.  Levy's often controversial show had run since the late 90s.  His show had often been rough around the edges in the early going, however, in the later years, the show concentrated more on the topic of sports
Levy has been known as a good interviewer and someone who would speak his mind.
Although the show may sometimes be off color, especially in it's early years, Mitch would often speak of his children and their Little League exploits.  A native of the East Coast, Levy would take annually take time off for the Jewish High Holidays and sprinkle his show with Yiddish terms.  It seemed like he had a happy home life. 
A departure of Mitch Levy could be a shift for the station and could rock the local radio scene.  It will be interesting to see how this will play out.
