TALKING UP IMUS
RADIO SIGNALS OF A WFAN COMEBACK
By DON KAPLAN
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.
