Scarborough's The Favorite:
MSNBC, WFAN May Be Near "Morning Joe" Deal
MSNBC's favorite to replace Imus in the Morning is Joe Scarborough. And WFAN is taking a liking to him too, TVNewser hears.
Scarborough was at WFAN's headquarters in Queens yesterday and today, hosting Morning Joe on TV and radio. The cable net and the radio station may be nearing an agreement to give Scarborough a permanent morning show seat.
MSNBC is feeling good about Morning Joe.
On Wednesday, he tied American Morning in the demo between 6 and 9am. He actually beat CNN during the 8am hour and had the second highest rated hour on MSNBC all day.
"There's some pretty good momentum behind him," an insider says.
