Said an unnamed source, "We'll have him on a standard 40-second delay. Don is rested, humbled, and ready for war!"
The comeback follows Imus’s firing by CBS and MSNBC after his questionable comments regarding the
University women’s basketball team. The source said Imus’s deal is for 8-figures over several years, signed with WABC’s parent company, Citadel Broadcasting.
No official announcements regarding potential guests of the show were discussed, though Hillary Clinton’s name was targeted by the source: "Hillary, prepare to meet your maker!"
Clinton visited the
Rutgers team and praised their response to Imus, calling his comments "small-minded bigotry and coarse sexism." Imus called
Clinton’s actions around the event “shameless exploitation.”
Also, according to the Drudge Report, Barbara Walters will interview Imus in an upcoming special.
