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
