Don Imus settles with CBS, comeback in the works

Don Imus has reached a settlement with the CBS over his contract and a comeback is possible.

Don Imus settles with CBS, comeback in the works Don Imus have settled his breach-of-contract dispute with the CBS. After he was fired from his morning show, following his controversial comments about the women’s basketball team at Rutgers University, Don Imus threatened to sue CBS for $120 million over his recently signed 5-year $40 million contract with the network.

 A joint statement of Imus and CBS announced today that both parties have managed to reach a settlement, details of which will not be made public.

 The settlement is not a surprise, as the lawyer of Don Imus, Martin Garbus, has found a loophole in the contract, in which CBS acknowledged that his services were “unique, extraordinary, irreverent, intellectual, topical, controversial.”

 Citing unnamed sources, reports in the media claim that besides the settlement with the CBS, Don Imus is taking steps to make a comeback with WABC, radio-station employing personalities such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. The reports for Imus comeback have not been confirmed by his lawyer or the radio station.

 Imus was fired on April 12th 2007 after calling the Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos" on his show.
