Imus Reverses “No More Interviews” Pledge

I-Fav Neil Cavuto had the last interview with Imus.  Unfortunately, Cavuto’s people insisted on using a photo which Imus claims makes him look like an old lesbian, result  “no more interviews” policy.   To no one’s surprise, Imus  reverses the policy and grants Sean Hannity an interview.  Here Sean  meets Imus at the IMUS RFD set where one assumes I-Producer Big Foot has production control.

Consider yourself notified…

Imus has been very complimentary regarding RFD production quality lately. Could this move to the news cluster be a precursor to RFD’s anticipated entry into AG news?  Stay Tuned!

Imus Christmas

Imus Christmas Memories?

Years ago, before MesSNBC and the FAN Christmas meant “that tree” at Rockefeller Center would finally come down.  Imus would get his parking space back and we wouldn’t have to hear about “that tree” for another year!

Happy Holidays!  Here’s a Christmas YouTube Playlist I’ve been working on.  This playlist features Christmas Videos from some of Imus’s favorite country artists from Brooks & Dunn to Wille Nelson. Even Elvis snuck in here with a Martina McBride Duet!

Imus Still Going One Year After the ‘Blacklash’

IMUS RETURNS

Jeff Bercovici reporting for Condé Nast on Imus’ Anniversary Show

Talking about the milestone this morning with Karith Foster and Tony Powell — two African-American comedians he brought on to insulate himself from charges of racism — the I-man fell prey to a wee Freudian slip, asking them if they had encountered any “blacklash” after throwing their lots in with him. (He quickly corrected himself.)

Bercovici also reported;

  • The Anniversary Show featured 1/2 hour sponsorships including appearances. (Explains that Audi Guy on-air, Imus seemed to be in love with his voice.)
  • There was an invitation only viewing party for the Imus family of advertisers at the Rainbow Studio.   (Explains the references to Imus’ “corpulent sales staff”.   Is anyone buying genius salesman Bob Gelb as being big boned?)
  • Imus is now on 50 Stations which is more then the 47 he was on with WFAN.  (Thought Imus crossed this threshold long ago.)
  • Morning Time slot is driving greater revenue then Curtis and Kuby had.  (No surprise) Read|More

ChanX CliffsNotes

Imus’ guest selection for the Anniversary Show (all power rotation guests) was superior.  Guests included Alexis Glick who is an Anchor and  Vice President of Business News at I-Sponsor FOX.  Political Pundit Mary Matalin who along with her husband James Carville were Imus stalwarts during the bad days.  Rounding out the guests on the big anniversary show was Comedian and Social Commentator Dick Gregory, who has become an I-Fav over the past year.

Imus read a touching email to the entire cast from Carol Foster congratulating the Imus program on the one year anniversary.  Carol is Karith’s mother and a member of the NABJ .  K-Mom noted how surprised she was by the number of her friends who listen to and commented on the program to her.

Imus makes his “Fat Larry Summers” point referencing The Gray Lady

Larry Summers

Larry Summers

The Times editorial writers deftly avoid criticising Barack “Mr Change” Obama, slamming Larry Summers while not missing a parting shot at the Bush administration and giving the Clinton administration a deregulatory pass. (more…)

Ironic Armor

The latest Imus question goes like this, “When will white comedians begin to make fun of Obama?”  The thought is race is too controversial and Obama’s election too historic to be made fun of.  The New York Times explores this very topic in a piece by Andy Newman “Irony Is Dead. Again. Yeah, Right.”.  Newman  advances the question regarding comedy, citing sources such as Joan Didon whom he credits as “the nation’s poet laureate of disillusion”… (more…)

 McCord: Did Colonel Jack Loose His Shirt In The Market?

 

Colonel Jack Jacobs without a doubt, is the best prepared, most knowledgeable, articulate, understandable power rotation guest who appears on Imus In The Morning.  In this appearance the Colonel breaks down the polls, the presidential campaigns, the economy and impact of raising taxes on ordinary people.

ChanX CliffsNotes

Imus:  This election is over, isn’t it?

Colonel Jacobs:  Its going to close and be much closer then people think.   Don’t believe the polls. They are national polls and that’s not how we elect the president.  The other problem with the polls is they are a function of who you ask and what they are asked.  Believes Palin is the margin of victory.  Picking someone nobody knows with 6 weeks to go, was a bad decision.
