Drudge: Imus deal done


According to the Drudge Report, Don Imus has secured a deal returning him to the airwaves on 12/3 – as most have reported – on WABC-AM NY.

"Imus In The Morning" will be on a 40-second delay, hopefully enough to eliminate any disparaging comments, such as the one about the Rutgers women’s basketball team that got him fired from CBS Radio and MSNBC. Drudge says it’s an eight-figure, multiyear contract with Citadel.

Station execs are still tinkering with the new schedule at WABC, which will likely see current morning jock Curtis Sliwa paired with late morning’s John Gambling.

Imus will be interviewed by Barbara Walters for a coming special.
