Radio personality Don Imus has prostate cancer [wikipedia] and Imus’s cancer is in stage II (which means the cancer is in early stage and has not spread outside the prostate to other organs), according to the media report. The 68-year-old radio host told his listeners of Imus In The Morning show from New York Monday that he is battling stage II prostate cancer. Don Imus is confident doctors can cure him but has noted he most probably will have to miss some broadcasting work due to the cancer treatment. “The day you find out is fine. But the next morning when you get up, your knees are shaking. I didn’t think I could make it to work.” said Mr. Imus. We wish Mr. Don Imus all the best!

Don Imus Canned by CBS Radio

Feb 5, 2009 Author: Admin | Filed under: Don Imus

Don Imus was just fired by CBS Radio in the wake of his “nappy-headed hos” slur, meaning he will no longer be on the air, either on television or radio, effective immediately.

Imus was originally suspended by CBS for two weeks after he made his remark last week on his radio and television shows. MSNBC took the step of pulling his TV simulcast off the air yesterday, but public outrage swelled and advertisers disappeared in droves.

In a statement announcing the firing, CBS chairman Leslie Moonves said:

“From the outset, I believe all of us have been deeply upset and revulsed by the statements that were made on our air about the young women who represented Rutgers University in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship with such class, energy and talent. Those who have spoken with us the last few days represent people of goodwill from all segments of our society – all races, economic groups, men and women alike. In our meetings with concerned groups, there has been much discussion of the effect language like this has on our young people, particularly young women of color trying to make their way in this society. That consideration has weighed most heavily on our minds as we made our decision, as have the many emails, phone calls and personal discussions we have had with our colleagues across the CBS Corporation and our many other constituencies.don-imus
