GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Longtime University of Florida sports broadcaster Steve Babik (BAB-ick) is facing federal charges of having child pornography on his home computer.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Tuesday that the 50-year-old Babik is charged with one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

His attorney, Larry Turner, says Babik appeared in court Tuesday, pleaded not guilty and was released with restrictions. Turner says it was too early in his investigation to comment on the charges.

The University Athletic Association said Tuesday that Babik has been fired.

Babik was the sideline reporter for Gators football games and handled other radio duties. He had been at UF since 1987.
