Florida Sportstalker bilked investors

98.1 FM "Sports radio talk show host Charles "Scott" McKinney will serve at least a year and a day in prison for bilking investors out of more than $100,000.

Edgar said the plea arrangement, which could land McKinney in state prison for up to five years and calls for "no less than a year and a day," was designed so he would not serve his sentence in a county jail....

McKinney, 42, of Santa Rosa Beach, works for Star Broadcasting as a commentator for 98.1 FM The Ticket sports talk radio. He co-hosts "The Morning Wrap" weekday mornings and "Southern Sports Tonight" weekday afternoons. He was originally arrested on the fraud and theft charges in March.

  • "We won't pull him off the air," Hale said.

Edgar said the state was prepared to prove at trial that McKinney had sold more than double the number of investment shares than existed in Southern Sports Tonight

McKinney told investors he needed money to buy broadcast equipment, investigators said. Edgar said McKinney spent the funds he received on himself."...via Radio Daily News
