ST. LOUIS (AP) — A longtime St. Louis broadcaster has pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges, and still faces other charges in state court.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that 79-year-old Harry Hamm entered the guilty plea Wednesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis. Still pending are state charges of second-degree statutory sodomy, incest and possession of child pornography. Hamm has pleaded not guilty in that case.

Hamm served for years as both a broadcaster on KMOX Radio and as the station’s entertainment editor.

Hamm, of Chesterfield, admitted that FBI investigators found child porn on his two cell phones and a personal laptop in 2018. He pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of child porn and one count of access with intent to view child porn.

He is expected to be sentenced in about two months.
