Legal battle looms.
July 2, 2007 -- Imus may be hitting the FAN again.

The radio rumor mill has turned the volume way up on reports that the return of Don Imus to WFAN is just around the corner.

And WFAN itself is fueling the reports.


"When we return to our regular schedule this September, I hope the team will once again be complete," Francesa said.

A few minutes before that, longtime Imus co-host Charles McCord also made a cryptic comment about having "looked into the rearview mirror . . . and some objects were closer than they appear."

Imus was fired in April for making a racist crack about the Rutgers women's basketball team.

Is the New York/New Jersey area so bereft of decent radio personalities that they have to go back to this well again? Aren't there any up and coming jocks that can do this job? Imus should head back to the "ranch" and stay there.

Imus is not as bad as most others, at least he eventually realized what he said was wrong and apologized. His producer was the real problem, he is the one that led him to make that statement. I would also think that if Imus did come back he would change enough that he would not say something like that again.
What really needs to happen is that Rush Limbaugh or the like need to be ousted from their thrones of bigotry.

Yeah, Ashen - Imus is not as bad as Limbaugh, et al, but that's like saying chicken pox doesn't itch as much as measles, lol.

To Paddy's questions, I don't think its a dearth of radio talent in NYC, but a lack of imagination by a radio station way too mired in its good old boy crowd.
