Imus: Tan, Rested and Returning to Radio

11/1/2007 5:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shock jock Don Imus is set to make his radio comeback December 3 on New York's WABC-AM, just nine months after his career seemed to be in the toilet, after making racist and sexist comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team.

The announcement was made today by WABC president Steve Borneman who said, "We are ecstatic to bring Don Imus back to morning radio. Don's unique brand of humor, knowledge of the issues and ability to attract big-name guests is unparalleled. He is rested, fired up and ready to do great radio."

Can't wait.

It's great that Imus will back on the radio because his show should have never been on TV in the first place. That's what did him in with the so called controversial Rutgers comment which is why Limbaugh is bigger than he is.

Maybe Imus can interview Sharpton and Jackson and ask them when they plan to plublicly apologize to the Duke LaCrosse players they "convicted". And maybe he can find out when they plan to publicly plan to criticize the turd that accused them in the first place. Oh wait.... Jesse's been hanging out in Chicago protesting about a gun shop and making a splash because he stayed overnight (with guards of course) in the projects. Seems they don't think the police should be questioning all the drug dealers that hang around there..... bunch of f'n geniuses.

Imus is a jokester. He was worried he was going to get a dishonorable discharge from the military because he and his friend stole the stars off of a General's vehicle and put it on Imus' car.

Evidently the General had a sense of humor. hee-hee

How about a boycott of all the advertisers who do business with ABC? Or maybe we can just complain about how wicked, icky, foul, etc. this guy is and let him rake in millions.

This world would be better off if Al and Jesse were not in it. They make the entire black race look very foolish. I woudn't p*ss on either one of them if they were ablaze. I really wish they would go somewhere and croak.

Some white people’s rationalization of their racist behavior never ceases to amaze me. I've noticed several comments and it is interesting how many are saying "it was a bad joke" "I'm glad he's back" etc. The fact of the matter is this man is a racist and clearly many of you are racist. So next I'm sure the thought will be "This is America...freedom of speech" Here is the issue for every action there is a reaction. He has the freedom to say exactly what he wants. The people he was referring to have the right to be offended and speak out about it. They exercised their right. If Al and Jessie or whoever want to boycott or demand Imus is fired if you believe in freedom of speech you will know that they have that right also.


The problem is many of you believe in selective speech...you only want to hear what you want to hear or what reaffirms your racist views (whether closeted or not)
The bottom line is this, this is not the 1960's anymore and white people will suffer repercussions and reactions for their actions and words. Period.

Now I know many of you are ignorant and will probably expose yourselves as the racists you are, by posting ridiculous replies. That is fine. Just know again this isn't the 1960's and your time is almost up. KNOW THAT.

Imus has another show. Money moves everything around and when that station loses money on this show it will be cut. Ultimately what station would want to be associated with hateful racist idiots? Only an stupid racist idiot will defend it. Go ahead expose yourself.
