Imus' program off MSNBC |

Imus' program off MSNBC | "NBC announced Wednesday that it was dropping Don Imus' program from its MSNBC cable network as the backlash continued to grow over racially disparaging remarks Imus made about the Rutgers University women's basketball team and advertisers said they were pulling their commercials from the morning television program.

MSNBC, which simulcasts Imus' nationally syndicated radio program, had previously said it would suspend Imus for two weeks, beginning next Monday, as did CBS Radio, his chief employer. CBS Radio reaffirmed the suspension in a statement after the NBC announcement and said it would 'continue to speak with all concerned parties and monitor the situation closely.'"
