Talker Agnello To Return To WCHS Charleston, WV

A radio host and former preacher who made headlines last summer when his run-ins with law enforcement prompted his removal from the airwaves will be returning to WCHS radio.

Mike Agnello will return July 8 as co-host of Charleston's longest running local radio talk show, "58 Live," on 580 AM WCHS, according to a story by Ashley B. Craig at dailymail.com.

He'll be rejoining Rick Johnson, who has been doing the show solo since Agnello left, in their old time slot from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

"We're glad to have him back," said Mike Buxser, vice president and market manager for West Virginia Radio Corp.

He was removed from the show last June after a series of "off-air incidents" including some that involved police action. Buxser said charges were dropped in the cases from last summer.

Agnello was arrested June 23, 2010, after a domestic situation with his girlfriend, Amy Dorsey. He was accused of grabbing the woman by the arms and throwing her to the ground several times. Police noticed reddish marks on the backs of her arms and fresh bruising on her hip and leg.
