Imus Plotting Radio Return -- "Ready for War!"

10/15/2007 3:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Disgraced radio talker Don Imus has re-emerged after Nappygate, and not in a small way -- he'll be coming to the country's biggest talk radio station on December 3, says the Drudge Report.




The I-Man has made a deal with WABC in New York to bring his "Imus in the Morning" show back to the airwaves in what Drudge is calling an "eight-figure, multi-year contract." That's eight figures, as in, north of $10 million a year. "Don is rested, humbled, and ready for war!" says a studio source.

Still, WABC isn't taking any chances that Imus' often loud mouth won't cause any crazy ripples. "We'll have him on a standard 40-second delay," says the source. Imus settled with former employer CBS over his breach-of-contract lawsuit, reportedly for a cool $20 million.

He should have never left! Freedom of speech, folks, with a comic twist.....people either have to accept that either everyone can speak in this manner, or no one can...ridiculous how the rules change depending on the situation, not the content.

Good. It's OK for blacks to racially disrespect whites anytime, but a white guy is labeled as Satan if he says something racist.

That is the sickest picture ever. He sucks, he is boring, and hard to look at. He will only get ratings because of the controversey. That will not last forever.

I'm not condoning anything that Imus said, but since we're hating, why not share the love a little. The rappers who call everyone the n-word, bitches, ho's and say that they should be slapped, raped, etc. need to be hated on also. The ones who are hollering "kill the po-po" and glorify drive-by shootings, violence and gangs need to be slapped with dead squirrels until they shut the hell up.

If it's not right for one, it's not right for all.

Disgraced??? He really didn't do anything that warranted the outcome. Al Sharpton is the one who needs to be removed from the air waves. How's that basketball player's lawsuit coming along? You know, the one that no one remembers her name!?

Imus reflects the current state of broadcasting: say anything for a reaction. That is why hideous creatures like Sarah Silverman have careers, they're alowed to say any vile thing that comes to mind. Yuck to all of them...

He's Boring now    

Bring it on...make your first guest Al Sharpton than grill his non sorry saying ass about the Harlem man who was burned to death, the Brawley incident, the Duke LaCrosse Team, and for trying to take a stand over Jenna when it was the wrong incident to do so.

Al grilled you, now if there is equal treatment to all, Al will accept---or continue to hide under some pre 1965 Civil Rights Act saga when Blacks werent hired, accepted into schools, or given an equal shot to share in Americas wealth.

Bring it on...Loud and Proud

Is imus more guilty of success by numbers of listeners and sponsors then off color remarks. Al Sharpton does this weekly to smaller numbers. Where exactly is Als apology to duke boys cause he was positive of their guilt and endorsed multi DNA sample full HO, as in real one. (the ho) Who later was shown not in school , had ACCUSED before, and in general a fine person representing......
