FORT WORTH - Cindy Sheehan will sell her war protest site near President Bush's ranch to a California radio talk show host, who will preserve it as a peace memorial, her spokeswoman said.

Sheehan, who announced on Memorial Day that she was stepping down as the face of the anti-war movement, will sell the 5-acre site in Crawford for $87,000 to Bree Walker, Sheehan spokeswoman Tiffany Burns said.

"Cindy is happy the land is going to be used for something positive," Burns said.

A telephone message left Friday with Walker, a former TV news anchorwoman who hosts a weekend talk show on KTLK-AM in Los Angeles, was not immediately returned.

Burns said Sheehan has been a guest on Walker's show several times and that Walker supports Sheehan.

Sheehan initially planned to sell the land on eBay with an $80,000 starting bid but scrapped the idea after getting an offer from Walker, Burns said.

Sheehan had said she would not willingly sell to Move America Forward, which supports the U.S. intervention in Iraq, which wanted to buy the land to erect a monument. The land in is about seven miles from Bush's ranch.
