CUMULUS MEDIA and its News-Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK have signed DON IMUS to a multi-year renewal to continue hosting “IMUS IN THE MORNING.” IMUS has been at WABC since 2007 after his firing at WFAN.
CUMULUS SVP/Content and Programming MIKE MCVAY said, "DON IMUS is not a media icon. He is much more than that. He is an American Icon. Mr. IMUS brings his ‘A’ game every day. And if you miss one day, you miss a lot. We are thrilled to have Don continue with WESTWOOD ONE, CUMULUS and WABC."
CUMULUS NEW YORK VP/Market Manager CHAD LOPEZ said, “DON IMUS has been entertaining New Yorkers for an unprecedented four decades and I am thrilled that he has agreed to continue with us at WABC. He is a broadcasting legend with a very strong loyal audience that truly appreciates his talent and professionalism.”
In the press release announcing the agreement, IMUS is quoted as saying, “I don’t know anything about this. Who are these people?”
