Authorities said John Balyo of WCSG (91.3 FM) was arrested Friday at a Christian music festival in Gaylord. He's being transported to Battle Creek to face the charge Monday in a Calhoun County court.

Balyo, 35, is accused of paying another man to arrange sex with minors. Authorities searched his home in Caledonia, south of Grand Rapids.

WCSG is a Christian station affiliated with Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids. General Manager Chris Lemke said the staff is "shocked and deeply saddened" by Balyo's arrest, and he promises to say more on the radio Monday morning.
