Longtime "IMUS IN THE MORNING" Executive Producer BERNARD MCGUIRK has officially been let go by CBS Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK, according to NEWSDAY. MCGUIRK made some of the APRIL 4 comments about the RUTGERS women's basketball team that resulted in the firing of IMUS by CBS and MSNBC; he joined the show in 1987 and provided character voices and comments to which IMUS could react.
Meanwhile, IMUS character voice sidekick ROB BARTLETT told OPIE AND ANTHONY on FRIDAY that he has not been told whether he has been fired by WFAN. "It's like getting the death penalty for a traffic violation," BARTLETT said of IMUS' firing.
