    Hard to believe,but his show is funny and runs well. Sure hes a quaint old fashioned coot,but since its on sirius,I tune in here and there,and its decent. Anyone else agree?

    Can you believe at his age (gotta be at least 73??) he's doing FIVE days a week in morning drive on FOX NEWS?? Also several health scares.

    I wonder what his vacation schedule is?? I'm guessing half of Wigward's huckster vacatiolution.

    I forgot to mention that. The old fucker barely takes time off. i am not a "big fan" of Imus,but its listenable,and less predictable than the vicious circle of Ronnie,JD,porn stars Arquette Rivers etc,and don`t forget the horrible robin songs,etm.

    I caught a few of his broadcasts years ago and, he was terrible.

    It seemed like there were 50 minutes of commercials per hour.

    Talk for a minute, 5 minute commercial break, talk for another minute, 5 minute commercial break.......

    I hated it. Unlistenable.

    He must have millions,and he has had a good career.Howard thinks Imus stole his style,they are quite different i believe.It is certainly not a great show,but Stern is falling fast so Imus is a bit better at this point.

    I've been listening to Imus on a local FM station since I cancelled Sirius. His interviews are much more entertaining and he's not afraid to confront a guest when they say something stupid. His show actually has more humor and less bullshit than Howard and is better than listening to Wiggy's constant lies and revisionist history.

    Imus had a piece of property in Conn. Price tag.25 mill as in million. Plus a place in N.Y. worth what ever. So Son did good in radio.

    Imus is horrible. I swear the only reason some might say nice things on here is to be anti-Howard ;)

    Better guests, more current and up to the moment discussions, better smarter and seemingly natural blonde, well adjusted productive son he had with her, more product and for free, seems to garner more genuine respect among his guests than Wigwam and equally about as hard on the eyes as him. The Beth fan blogger asserts that he's got the dirt on Pelican puss and that's why Stern will only push his attacks on Don & Deidre only so far lest that Pandora' s Box be opened. I suspect it involves some documentation on Beth's self-described $1400/day European (vertical) "modeling"

    No no, I AGREE! I'm no Imusophile by any means but he has a niche crowd. My dad used to listen to him and Imus is perfect for that 55 and older guy with a tinge of a sense of old school humor that still has the attention span to watch a four hour extra inning Major League Baseball game or a PGA Tournament on a weekend.

    Wigward's lazy redundancy has by far usurped Imus's and the few times I've listened Bernard McGuirk was pretty funny. I also think Wigward has 5x the stooges doing the heavy lifting for his shitshow than Imus does.
