Don Imus will join Fox Business Network beginning Oct. 5.
FBN announced Sept. 2 that the acerbic radio host — who was temporarily exiled from radio and TV after distasteful comments about the Rutgers women’s basketball team — will bring the simulcast of his program to the network beginning Oct. 5. Imus’ show had simulcast on the rural cable channel RFD-TV, but he recently parted ways with the channel, airing his last show for RFD on Aug. 28.
The multi-year deal confirms wide-spread reports that surfaced last month. Imus, whose Citadel radio program is syndicated to more than 65 stations, will occupy the 6-9 a.m. slot Monday through Friday.
