Depending on which "Post" writer you believe the new morning host on WFAN/660 in New York will either be Don Imus or Joe Scarborough.
Writing in their respective newspapers on Monday, Don Kaplan of the New York Post says it will be Imus and Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post suggests it might be Joe Scarborough.
In his article, Kaplan reported that Imus’ return to WFAN could be "just around the corner."
Meanwhile, Imus' lawyer, Martin Garbus, has reportedly been trying to use his client's threatened multimillion-dollar lawsuit against CBS Radio as leverage for reinstatement.
However,in article in Washington Post, Kurtz hints that not has Scarborough locked up the morning gig on MSNBC, but he might also have the inside track for morning slots on CBS Radio stations.
It’s ironic that MSNBC would pick Scarborough as the permanent replacement for Imus. Remember it was the shock jock’s racist and sexist remark about the Rutgers women’s basketball team (he called them "nappy headed hos") that resulted in the cancellation of both his syndicated radio show and cable TV simulcast.
After all, wasn't it Scarborough who joked about former senator Fred Thompson’s wife Jeri --asking whether the attractive Mrs. Thompson "works the pole" to stay in shape.
