Imus Still Going One Year After the ‘Blacklash’

IMUS RETURNS

Jeff Bercovici reporting for Condé Nast on Imus’ Anniversary Show

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.
