RFD-TV confirms Imus simulcast


Rural Media Group Inc. announced that it has signed a 5-year agreement to simulcast the "Imus In The Morning" program from new radio flagship WABC-AM New York exclusively on RFD-TV and RFD HD. The show will air live on the cable/satellite network weekdays from 6-9am (ET). "Imus in the Evening," a rebroadcast of the morning’s program, will air in primetime on RFD HD from 6-9pm and will be featured on video-on-demand enabling West Coast viewers and millions of fans to experience the show at their convenience. RFD, now available mostly on rural cable systems, is expected to use the Imus show to seek carriage by the major MSOs.
