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.

I could never stand Imus.

I am glad that he is off of TV, I hope permanently.

It's insane, how some people can make RIDICULOUS amounts of $$$ for acting CRAZY, and he's not even a comedian.

And he gets the last laugh by getting more $$$.

What a SHAME!!!

Can't get back on the air soon enough for me. It's been a long four months. Imus in the Morning was the best show on. He had a contract to be controversial, irreverant, outrageous and CBS broke that contract by firing him for doing his job. He'll be back soon and the ratings will be through the roof. Give it a listen. I think you'll like it. If not just turn the dial. This is America.

Hey, a half an hour has passed, and the not-so-good Rev. Al still hasn't been finding a camera to plant himself in front of to run his mouth. How can this be?

I'm not worried. I'm sure we'll see him slither out from the rock by the end of the afternoon.

Imus is coming back finally, this means whoever doesn't like it, is just going to have to DEAL with it. You know like grown ups do, instead of throwing a fit like 9 year old girl. Que the Reverends. Unless of course you are in fact a "little girl" if you don't like it booo freakin hooo. Imus back on the air about time! Non Disparaging Clause, Moonves is worried about his reputation? for real? As I recall Howard Stern was not so kind to Moonves as he was leaving.

Anne,

I am offended that you compared a joke to mass. I think you should not have the right to say that. You should shut your mouth and not say that. It has offened me. Oh wait, I have the ability to not listen to what you have the freedom to say. Stop wishing away your rights!
