Don Imus to Sign Off for the Last Time

By Chris Ariens Comment

Don Imus, who’s retiring after 50 years in radio—including nearly 18 years simulcast on cable TV—will talk about the highlights, and lowlights, for CBS Sunday Morning.

In the interview with Anthony Mason, Imus talks about his longtime feud with another legendary broadcaster, Howard Stern, going back to when they both worked for WNBC radio.

“He had a big problem with me,” Imus says. “I didn’t with him.”

Imus also talks about the 2007 incident which led to him losing his radio job with CBS, and the simulcast that aired on MSNBC, when he used a slur when talking about the Rutgers women’s basketball team.

“It did change my feeling about making fun of some people who didn’t deserve to be made fun of and didn’t have a mechanism to defend themselves,” Imus said.

Imus then brought his show to WABC radio, which was simulcast on Fox Business from 2008-2015.

Imus’ final broadcast is March 29.
