imus-cancer1

 

According to the I-Man the diagnosis is Stage II Prostate Cancer.  Not the result of common causes such as diet, since Imus has been on a cancer preventing health diet for over 10 years.  According to Imus it could have been caused by stress brought on by Les Moonves or Phil Griffin or that “fat pig Al Sharpton”.

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 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.

Here We Go Again?  

Not Quite, WABC & Citadel VP Phil Boyce Backs Imus 

 

WABC and Citadel Broadcasting Corp. Vice President Phil Boyce said Imus would be explaining his comments on his Tuesday morning show and it was unlikely the broadcasters would take disciplinary action against him.

Boyce said Imus had explained his words in a private conversation Monday afternoon and the explanation was satisfactory.

“I think some people may be misunderstanding what he meant,” said Boyce

Guys from ESPN do some real reporting, they go to WABC Radio for management reaction. Novel Idea!

Couple of differences between now and April ’07:

  • Talk radio now knows how to defend itself against these type of attacks.
  • Management stepped in immediately and defended Imus.
  • Dick Gregory appears on the show and defends Imus.
  • Imus is not on going on the Sharpton apology tour.
  • Pacman Jones is not an innocent bystander.
  • Then there is that pesky I-Nation thing.
