Caustic radio shock jock who was abruptly fired in 2007 from his gig as morning show host on New York radio station WFAN for remarks about the appearances of the Rutgers University women's basketball team. A simulcast of Imus' radio show was also taken off the air at the same time by cable news network MSNBC even though for years his program had been the network's highest rated show.
