The general manager of popular independent radio station WRLT-Lightning 100 was arrested over the weekend after a grand jury indicted him on two felony sex charges.
Fred Buc, a longtime radio executive and host in Nashville, was charged with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor and a count of displaying sex acts to a minor older than 13. Buc, 55, was arrested on Saturday night, according to jail records, but posted $100,000 bond and was released around 11:30 p.m.
According to the indictment, Buc allegedly displayed sexually explicit material to an undercover officer posing as a minor in September 2011. A second count alleges Buc possessed material that included a minor engaged in sexual activity.
A Metro Nashville Police Department statement on Monday afternoon said Buc is accused of exposing himself over the Internet to someone he believed to be a 16-year-old girl but was actually a law enforcement detective in Virginia.
During the course of the investigation, police allegedly obtained warrants and discovered images of child pornography on computers used by Buc.
When contacted by The City Paper on Monday afternoon, Tuned In Broadcasting president Lester Turner said Buc’s employment status with the company had not changed. Tuned In Broadcasting operates WRLT.
Buc is a 35-year radio industry veteran, having spent more than 30 of those years in Nashville. He also hosts a Saturday morning show on Lightning 100 called “Retro Lightning.”
A court date for Buc has not been set, according to Davidson County Criminal Court Clerk records.
