Don Imus is Back (or Will Be)

The Rutgers Women's basketball team might want to stay away from WABC on their radio dial if they visit New York City. Don Imus will be back on WABC in New York City with his Imus in the Morning program. It will debut (or perhaps re-debut) on Dec. 3.

You may recall the "nappy-headed hos" comment which Imus made on April 4 of this year. It eventually resulted the cancellation of his show a little more than a week later. However, in May Imus filed a lawsuit against CBS, saying his behavior on his show was in fact encouraged, per the clause in his contract to exhibit "irreverant" and "controversial" programming. In August CBS settled the lawsuit out of court.

Citadel Broadcasting owns WABC, so it's likely Imus' show will be syndicated across at least some of its stations. "We'll have him on a standard 40-second delay," a studio source said. Obviously they know what they're getting.

I am so glad that Imus is making a come back. I have greatly missed his show. I was enraged when they pulled the plug. He is a great person and I love the way he never holds back his real opinion. I wish him all the best.

Personally, I think the guy is an arrogant asshole, but to each his own. He has his fans; some of whom are just like him. I dont have to lsiten to him and I wont.

Anonymous says he's an "Arrogant Asshole" Anonymous is as much an arrogant asshole for posting his/her comment. I loved Imus in the Morning and can't wait until he's back on the air. What people should really object to are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and other assholes like them and the ACLU that are trying to change what America is really all about!
