Don Imus’ Time Nearly Up? Charles McCord’s Time Apparently is…
FTVLive is reporting that FBN execs are really close to separating themselves from the I-man. Kind of hard to believe after watching Kevin Magee’s performance on the show but FTVLive does have a very good track record on such matter, albeit one that sometimes takes a very long time to pan out.

Several media sources said Thursday that Charles McCord, whose role on Imus’s WABC radio and Fox Business Network morning shows has always gone far beyond his official position as newsman, is retiring after 48 years behind the microphone.
McCord’s departure would alter the Imus show, where for over four decades Imus and McCord have developed one of radio’s longest lasting partnerships.
Sources indicated McCord could leave within the next two or three weeks.
McCord leaving IS a big deal.
