Police say George Weber, a former KGO-AM newscaster and talk show host, was killed in his Brooklyn apartment by a 16-year-old boy who answered a Craigslist ad Weber posted for a sexual partner, The New York Times reports. According to the Times, the boy said on his MySpace page that he was an “extremist, an anarchist and a sadomasochist. As long as you show respect for me, I will show respect for you.” But it warned that if he were not shown respect, he would “break your neck.” The boy was arrested Tuesday. Weber left KGO for a station in San Diego and then landed in New York where he did morning drive time news for 12 years before he was laid off. Recently he had been a free-lance anchor for ABC News Radio.

UPDATE: SF Weekly reports that colleagues at KGO are shocked by stabbing.
