The irascible, cantankerous, humorous New York City cowboy, Don Imus, will arrive back on Philly's radio dial starting tomorrow morning.
His return on WWIQ 106.9 FM talk radio station comes six years after he was last on radio in Philadelphia. He was dropped in 2007 after some racist/sexist remarks about the Rutgers University women's basketball team.
Imus will be heard 6 to 9 a.m. each weekday on 106.9, a Merlin Media-owned station that fills out its nationally syndicated daily schedule also including Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.
"There will be some people who welcome Imus back," radio expert Tom Taylor said. "I think about Don what you can say is there are people who enjoy his mix of guests and sardonic take on things. And his take is a lot like Sunday morning TV news shows. He has on authors and politicians."
