Could Imus be coming back to a radio near you?
They say it's almost a done deal for Imus to return to the airwaves in NYC (this time at WABC). Will he be rolled out again into syndication? Will he be appearing on a Boston station as well?
Here is the Newsday article:
Imus near deal to return to airwaves
Citadel Broadcasting is close to finalizing a contract with Don Imus that would bring the controversial radio host back to the airwaves, a person familiar with the discussions said Tuesday.
It was not immediately clear from where Imus would be heard, but Citadel owns WABC in New York, making its morning slot a logical destination. It also owns WPLJ-FM.
There are really only two places that he could appear in Boston....WRKO or WTKK.
WRKO has a struggling morning show.
WTKK, has Howie Carr waiting in the wings to take over mornings as soon as a judge allows it.
I never really cared for Imus, but the way he was forced off the air was a disgrace. An apology and suspention should have been all it took to remedy the situation. I gues once again Al Charlatan got his way.Post a Comment
