DJ accused of cheating listeners

New York - Sonny Bloch, a radio talk-show host, was arrested in the Dominican Republic and will be returned to New Jersey to face charges of conspiring to defraud his listeners out of $21m (pounds 13.2m). He fled the United States in March, saying he was being "persecuted" by federal authorities. He continued broadcasting from the Dominican Republic, his wife's birthplace.
