Radio Host Don Imus Battling Prostate Cancer

Originally posted 03/16/2009 10:30AM

Radio host Don Imus made light of some serious news on Monday: He has stage two prostate cancer.

"I'll be fine. If I'm not fine, then I won't be fine. And it's not a big deal," Imus, 68, said during his WABC radio show Monday morning.

"I have great confidence in my doctors," he told listeners. "The prognosis couldn't be better."

Imus said he was diagnosed last Wednesday.

The controversial radio host caused a national stir when he made a racially derogatory remark about the Rutgers women's basketball team on the air in 2007. He was fired by CBS. Later that same year, he was hired by ABC and returned to the radio.

Imus Vs. Bryant

Originally posted 11/04/1998 12:00AM

Don't expect Don Imus and Bryant Gumbel to exchange Valentines. The radio jock has been goading "The Early Show" host over Gumbel's alleged miserly ways in dealing with his estranged wife June. Last Friday Imus sent demonstrators to Gumbel's CBS studios to protest his behavior. (Only Gumbel took the day off, which many considered odd, given the basement ratings of the still relatively new morning show.) Now comes the latest volley: Gumbel's attorney, Stanley Arkin, has told The Washington Post: "Imus is a jerk. What he does is stupid and banal." Next move, Imus's.
