Imus to Leave RFD-TV

Clearing the way for the Fox Business Network to simulcast his radio show, Don Imus said Wednesday that he was leaving RFD-TV, the rural television network that has shown “Imus in the Morning” for almost two years.

RFD will carry his show for the final time on Friday.

A spokesman said that Mr. Imus’s radio broadcasts “will continue to be produced by WABC Radio in New York and heard on 65 affiliates across the country courtesy of Citadel Broadcasting.”

Mr. Imus is in advanced negotiations with Fox Business, a unit of News Corporation, to simulcast his popular radio program. The deal would bring a big (albeit bruised) name to Fox Business, which has struggled to gain a robust audience since it started nearly two years ago. Click on the photo or KEEP READING HERE.
