The cancer diagnosis was the latest twist in a storied career of the radio morning man. In 2007, Imus was fired by WFAN after he called the Rutgers women’s basketball team, “nappy-headed hos.” He also lost his MSNBC TV simulcast of his radio show over the controversy. Imus returned to the airwaves later in 2007 at WABC Radio, and is also carried on TV network RFD. Prostate cancer hits more than 200,000 men each year, with roughly 30,000 deaths each year, according to WebMD.com. Imus did not discuss his treatment choices, but typically prostate cancer is treated through surgery or radiation therapy.
Hmm, his photo no longer embiggens. Strange.
