Police: Tampa radio personality arrested after prostitution-related act

A Tampa radio personality was arrested Tuesday night on a charge of unlawful acts as a precursor to prostitution.

According to jail records, Gregory James Galvin – known to radio listeners as “Galvin” on The Mike Calta Show on 102.5 (FM) The Bone – was arrested about 11:30 p.m. near East Flora Street and North Nebraska Avenue.

Tampa police were running a prostitution operation in the area in response to complaints from residents of the area.

Galvin circled the block at least two times, police said, and then pulled over to the northeast corner of the intersection and started talking to the undercover officer.

While he was trying to negotiate a prostitution deal, according to police, Galvin asked the undercover officer to show her breasts to prove she wasn’t a police officer.

When she refused, Galvin tried to flee but was boxed in by officers and was arrested for the precursor acts for prostitution, police said.

Galvin, 42, who lives in Tampa and lists Tampa personal injury attorney Dominic Fariello as his lawyer, was released this morning on $250 bond.
