Two gunmen have killed a popular Honduran radio journalist known for his satirical broadcasts and social commentary.

Carlos Salgado was shot multiple times Thursday as he was leaving Radio Cadena Voices, the station where he worked in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa.

Salgado hosted a comical radio show, "Bean the Terrible," that touched on politics and social themes and which often criticized the social situation in Honduras.

Authorities are searching for the people suspected of carrying out the shooting.

Salgado's murder comes at a time when Honduran President Manual Zelaya is at odds with the local media, which have been questioning the actions of his government.
