Remember Imus?

Well, he’s back on the radio. After eight months of an extended hiatus after the Rutgers Women’s Basketball Team incident, Imus returned to his home in the airwaves this morning on a new station and with a new “diversified” staff. The man seems to have changed, but he’s probably just careful not to make any waves… yet.

“We now have the opportunity to have a better program, to obviously diversity the cast — I mean that just makes sense. But the program is not going to change. … It is a great radio program. It’s on a better radio station. … I will never say anything in my lifetime that will make any of these young women at Rutgers regret or feel foolish that they accepted my apology and forgave me. And no one else will say anything on my program that will make anyone else think that I didn’t deserve a second chance.”

Time will tell. Imus was known for being edgy and provocative and that’s what made his show popular. He made a mistake and went too far earlier this year. I wonder if he can still deliver what his fans want or if he’s going to be overly-cautious and lose fans for having a boring radio show.
