Don Imus will join Fox Business Network beginning Oct. 5.
FBN announced Sept. 2 that the acerbic radio host -- who was temporarily exiled from radio and TV after distasteful comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team -- will bring the simulcast of his program to the network beginning Oct. 5. Imus' show had simulcast on the rural cable channel RFD-TV, but he recently parted ways with the channel, airing his last show for RFD on Aug. 28.
The multi-year deal confirms wide-spread reports that surfaced last month. Imus, whose Citadel radio program is syndicated to more than 65 stations, will occupy the 6-9 a.m. slot Monday through Friday.
Imus will displace Alexis Glick's Money for Breakfast, which will have its last show Oct. 2. Glick, who is FBN's vice president of business news, will continue to anchor Opening Bell weekday mornings from 9-10 a.m.
