    Don Imus, RFD Part Ways
    Move Pays Could Pave Way For Disc Jockey To Join Fox Business Network

    Don Imus will part ways with RFD-TV. The news, while not unexpected, clears the way for the radio star to proceed with a deal to have his Citadel radio show simulcast on Fox Business Network.

    Imus' radio show is produced out of flagship station WABC in New York and syndicated to more than 65 affiliates nationally. He would bring a measure of star power to FBN, which launched two years ago as an alternative to business news leader CNBC.

    Imus' final show on RFD will be Aug. 28. He has been on the agricultural-oriented network since December 2007, shortly after returning to the airwaves in the wake of incendiary comments he made about the Rutgers women's basketball team.

    Imus to Join Fox Business Network
    Multi-year deal will bring radio host to FBN starting Oct. 5

    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.

    Imus will displace Alexis Glick's Money for Breakfast, which will have its last show Oct. 2. Glick, who is FBN's vice president of business news, will continue to anchor Opening Bell weekday mornings from 9-10 a.m.
