Televangelist's final broadcast will be Friday

After more than 1,200 live broadcasts since 2003, controversial televangelist Bill Keller, below, is going off the air. His last television show, Live Prayer with Bill Keller, will air Friday on the ION Network, WXPX-Ch. 66. Known for his biting commentary on subjects from Mormons to Muslims, Keller shared the news in his daily Internet devotional Monday. The St. Petersburg preacher said executives at the network told him last week it would no longer air live programs. Keller moved to Channel 66 this month after run-ins with two other stations over his program's content and format. Because viewers' live calls are the cornerstone of his ministry, Keller decided to end his multiyear television run. Keller plans to relaunch his program at LivePrayer.com in January.e_SClBDad arrested in stabbing of son

That sparked a row that ended with the father, Scott Penney, 46, arrested on a charge of domestic aggravated battery. According to St. Petersburg police, Penney stabbed his son in the chest with a knife while they were in the parking lot of a Walgreens at 3077 54th Ave. S. Todd Penney, 21, was taken to Bayfront Medical Center. His injuries were not life-threatening.
