Imus and FBN Part Ways…

Capital New York’s Alex Weprin writes that Imus and FBN are parting ways…

A Fox Business executive familiar with the situation says that the move has been in the works since January. Imus decided to move to Texas full-time, and after telling his decision to Fox News and Fox Business C.E.O. Roger Ailes, the two sides decided to “amicably” part ways, given the need for the TV simulcast to originate from New York, the executive said.

FBN is also said to have been working on a new dayside business schedule since the decision was made and will be announcing a new lineup sometime in the coming weeks. Imus’ program airs from 6-9 a.m., an important pre-markets time period.

  1. This sounds like it might be the end of the road for on TV Imus – the last of the real ‘get off my lawn’ style radio shock jocks on the medium. I imagine he will stay on radio for now as he can do that show from his ranch in Texas. I do wonder if any of his on-air posse will follow him out west?

    No more FBN for me.. I just cancelled on cable.Imus was the only good a.m.show on tv.
