A Little Rock, Ark., radio station has canceled a popular morning show as police in a nearby community investigate whether the show's producer distributed sexually explicit videotapes at a gay rights parade.
Officials with Signal Media Corp. said Wednesday that employees of the morning show no longer work for KABZ-FM. It was unclear whether they resigned or were fired. The group includes producer Phlip Satchel, who is under investigation.

Police in Conway, about 25 miles north of Little Rock, said Wednesday that no decision has been made on whether to seek criminal charges. Satchel is accused of passing out gay pornographic videos to parade protesters, including a teenager, who lined the route of the gay rights event on June 27. Television news clips showed a man wearing a black Speedo-style swimsuit walking along the parade route announcing that he was giving away pornographic material and handing out DVDs. The radio show was taken off the air after the incident.
