Imus Returns to Radio: "I Haven't Changed"

Shock jock Don Imus returned to the radio airwaves Monday morning, with new sidekick Karith Foster — an African-American comedienne — at his side. "I thought it was an opportunity to diversify the cast," he explains.It was a smart if calculated move to smooth things over in light of the incident that got him booted seven months ago. In a sitdown with Barbara Walters airing Thursday night, Imus says of his face-to-face with the Rutgers women's hoops team, "They were hurt. They told me how they felt and I got the message. I [will] never... do anything that will make them regret that they forgave me."That said, Imus hasn't pulled a complete 180 — far from it. Dick Cheney is "a war criminal" and "Hillary Clinton is still Satan" as far as he's concerned. "I haven't changed."What's your take? Should Imus be given a second chance?read more

Don Imus Heartlands a New TV Gig

Don Imus is officially forgiven in the heartland. The veteran radio and TV hell-raiser who was booted from MSNBC after his injudicious comments about Rutgers University's women's hoop stars has a new multimillion-dollar TV gig, the New York Times reports. RFD-TV, a rural cable and satellite outlet available to some 30 million homes, is expected to sign Imus, who already has a deal with New York City radio's WABC-AM, for a daily morning show and a nightly rerun. Plans are for the formerly disgraced personality to debut his show on Dec. 3, possibly with a live telecast from Manhattan's Town Hall. RFD founder Patrick Gottsch says Imus' many mea culpas are "good enough for me," and he sees the show as the ideal vehicle to raise his channel’s profile.Imus's RDF colleagues will include cattle auctions, country music and the popular Big Joe Polka Show. Sounds pretty ripe for some Imus satire to us. — Ileane Rudolph read more

Don Imus Returns to Radio on Dec. 3

Disgraced shock jock Don Imus is getting another chance. Citadel Broadcasting has announced that Imus will return to the airwaves over its New York flagship WABC starting Dec. 3. Imus has been off the air since April after he made racist and sexist remarks about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team. Imus apologized for the remarks, but was fired by CBS Radio and by cable network MSNBC, which simulcast his program. Imus, who will be reunited with newsreader and longtime partner Charles McCord, will take over the morning-drive shift from current hosts Curtis Sliwa and Ron Kuby. There's been no word on whether the new show will have a TV simulcast. But TV advertisers are much more sensitive than those for AM radio, so it’s expected to be a tougher sell. —Reporting by Stephen Battaglio read more

Don Imus Close to Deal?

Disgraced radio personality Don Imus may soon be returning to the airwaves. Imus is reportedly close to signing with Citadel Broadcasting, the company that recently took over the stations owned by Disney/ABC. Imus and cohort Charles McCord are in talks to take over the morning-drive slot on Citadel's New York flagship AM station WABC. The program would also be syndicated on other outlets across the country. Imus has been off the air since mid-April, after he made racist and sexist remarks on his program about the Rutgers University women's basketball team. Public outcry over the comments led to the dismissal of Imus from CBS Radio, which syndicated his show, and from cable network MSNBC, where it was simulcast. Imus recently reached an out-of-court settlement with CBS over the $40 million remaining on his contract. —Reporting by Stephen Battaglio read more
