Bernie Ward hearing Thursday

Bernie Ward, the talk show host accused of possessing and trafficking child pornography, appears in Federal Court in San Francisco Thursday at 1:30 p.m. before Judge Vaughn Walker.

KGO general manager Mickey Luckoff was quoted confusingly by ABC news saying that Ward has been fired, but that Luckoff wants to bring the host back.

You can read the latest from Bernie here.

Ward's Sunday "God Talk" show has been taken for now by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, who does a show on conservative talk station KSFO-AM, KGO's sister station.

Ward was caught with three illegal photos, which he says he was using as part of research for a book on hypocrisy.

His liberal talk show has been filled by Karel, Brian Copeland and --somewhat sacrilegiously, by conservative Bill Wattenburg.
