Any money says he was drunk when playing with his gun. A few drinks and this guy just ruined his entire life. Pretty sad.

The threat of jail is only part of the pressure on Shannon. 30-50k in legal bills, divorce, can't pay the mortgage in jail, loss of his job. He might be innocent we don't know but grabbing a gun when you are in an argument is intimidating at the least. What were you thinking man ?

Kampmeier said company policy prohibited him from going into more detail. He said the temporary plans for Real Radio 104.1's midday show are for it to continue on with Soul Brother Kevin and the rest of the crew. The station, WTKS, has not yet made plans for the show's future.

Oh well no more real loser radio for me. without burke the show will die very soon.

Burke was no prize. As for O-Town radio, it's among the worst in the nation so no real loss any way you slice it.

Please, just follow your drunken hero Shannon to whatever avenue of life he goes to, whether it's prison wife, or meth lab owner.

What did Soul Brother Kevin ever do to you?

I think "Truth" speaks the truth. It's a shame that Burke didn't realize sooner that alcohol was going to ruin his life. I enjoyed his show and wish him well.

TO SKIPPYLOU: Alcohol use has a say in events. But not as much as you think. Maybe Shannon Burke chose wrong in his marriage and was not happy. There are plenty of people in that situation. I am not making excuses for the man. But what happens inside the home, is not the same as what happens outside the home at times.

I remember when Burke started in Orlando and was the AM slot. His picture was this clean cut conserative talk show host. Then he jumps over to real radio and becomes this middle aged dude trying to look like a 20 something. The guy needs help and maybe this will be his wake up call.. I do say this. If this had been one of the Orlando's Slantinel's prime reporters (if they have one) would there been this much press coverage? I think not. Isn't it interesting when the media's competition gets involved in something how the other's jump on it like flys?
