While his radio show will continue (Imus confirmed he’s just inked a new contract with Cumulus Media), that didn’t stop many of his FOX colleagues from offering some tongue-in-cheek “tributes” to the I-Man via a special audio/video prepared for today’s show.
“What a sad day,” said FOX News Channel personality and Premiere Networks syndicated Talk radio host Sean Hannity. “The FOX Business Network is going to lose the cranky, contentious, Imus In The Morning.
