Eight months ago, Imus was fired from CBS radio for calling the Rutgers women’s basketball team “some nappy-headed hoes.” Despite the firing, the media quickly shifted the focus from Imus’ comments to the explicit language used by rappers. Imus returned to radio this morning on ABC radio, where he began his broadcast by addressing the Rutgers drama for 15 minutes. He called the new show a “second chance” and a “rejuvenation.” He has now added two black members to his supporting cast: comics Karith Foster and Tony Powell.
Houston MC Chamillionaire is set to appear on CNN talk show Larry King Live tonight (Dec 3) to discuss controversial radio host Don Imus’ return to radio. The show, which is expected to address whether of not Imus deserves a second chance, will air at 9 p.m. EST.
