Don Imus Settles With CBS

by | 14th, August 2007

DON Imus, American radion host, has called the mainly black Rutgers basketball team a bunch of “nappy-headed hos“. Imus chose to make his view known while broadcasting his nationally syndicated and nationally televised morning radio show.

That was April.

Now as Drudge reports:

Radio host Don Imus has agreed to settle his contract with CBS for $20 million, and a non disparaging clause, legal sources claim. The move opens the possibility Imus will soon return to the airwaves — on WABC in New York!

The NY Times says:

Just before his dismissal, Mr. Imus had signed a five-year, $40 million contract with CBS. Mr. Garbus, a well-known First Amendment lawyer, said in May that Mr. Imus planned to sue CBS for $120 million in unpaid salary and damages.

You get sacked. And thaks to employment laws, you win a fortune. God bless America…
