DJ facing sex abuse allegations suspendedNovember 16, 2012 @ 8:19 am
LONDON (AP) - A British radio station has suspended the radio program of a disc jockey who has been arrested as part of a national child sex abuse scandal.
Bauer Media says Dave Lee Travis' weekend show on Magic AM will not be broadcast until the investigation has been resolved.
Travis was arrested Thursday and later freed on bail as part of a wide-ranging police inquiry that began by looking into allegations against the late Jimmy Savile, a BBC TV host suspected of abusing hundreds of underage girls.
The 67-year-old Travis has denied any wrongdoing. He told reporters Friday that he is being investigated for groping two grown women, not for abusing children.
Travis was once one of Britain's best-known DJs. He has not been charged.
