Report: CBS To Settle Up with Imus

8/14/2007 1:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Associated Press is reporting that shock jock Don Imus has reached a settlement with CBS, after the broadcaster was fired for making racist and sexist comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team. Calling Al Sharpton!

According to an AP source, the settlement keeps CBS out of court and away from Imus' threatened $120 million breach of contract lawsuit and a possible "non-disparaging agreement" which would keep Imus from speaking negatively about his former employer. Shut yo' mouth!

In addition, WABC radio in New York is reportedly in talks with the I-man to bring him back to the airwaves.

This is GREAT news. Imus is missed on talk radio in the a.m. A lot of us will be
happy to see him return. Now if only MSNBC would wise up and replace "Morning Joe"
with Imus again on MSNBC. Everyone would be a winner.

I may be mistaken, but I don't think "settlement" means he's going back on the air, at least with CBS.

It was a well deserved firing. He is a low class ignorant, obnoxious pig just like Sharpton. He doesn't belong in the media.

imus was the best person on tv. it is revolting that he was subjected to al sharpton and jesse jackson "minute of fame." the truth is the comment could have been deleted by radio and tv.
