Is Don Imus making his way back to morning radio? Possibly so, according to that bastion of journalism excellence the New York Post:
While celebrating the sports station's 20th anniversary last Friday, Imus pals Mike Francesa and Chris Russo, of "Mike and the Mad Dog," hinted that a deal to bring the crusty talk-radio cowboy back is in the works.
"When we return to our regular schedule this September, I hope the team will once again be complete," Francesa said.
Imus has a lawsuit pending against CBS, the parent of WFAN. He claims in a breach of contract suit that he is stilled owed $40 million. So, with a big fan base, and a big pay check owed to Imus, maybe they will bring him back.
From Diversityinc.com, ----An article in the New York Daily News reported that WFAN was caught airing old episodes of the Imus show late last week.
Mark Chernoff, WFAN program director, commented on the broadcast, saying Imus' contribution to the station could not be ignored. "He was such a big part of the station for all those years," said Chernoff.
Should Imus come back? You be the judge.
Stay tuned, just not to WFAN.
