Frequently Asked Questions

I've been getting the same questions over and over again, so I thought I'd make a nice tidy list.

1) Is Imus coming back?
Indeed he is! 770 WABC will be his flagship station. He'll also be simulcast on RFD-TV.

2) Can I get tickets to his opening show?
Yes, you can! The show will be at the Town Hall Theatre in New York, on Monday, December 3rd. You can buy tickets here. (Also, information about parking, directions, accessibility, and a guide to local hotels and restaurants can be found under the "Visitor's Information" section on the Town Hall's main webpage.)

3) Will Imus be syndicated anywhere?
The list is growing, but so far we know that he'll be on 96.9 WTKK in Boston. (Speaking of WTKK, you might want to listen to longtime I-Fave Jay Severin make the announcement about his return. It's pretty awesome.)

4) Is Bernard McGuirk coming back?
Yes.

5) How about Lou Ruffino?
Who is Lou "Ruffino"? And why are you asking me? This is an Imus site, not classmates.com.

That said, I do know that Lou "Rufino" -with one F - will be rejoining Imus.

6) And what about Rob Bartlett?
He'll be back. (Incidentally, you might want to get more information about his stand-up shows here.)

7) Will Imus in the Morning be broadcast on a delay?
Yes, for twenty-one seconds. Some people are making a big deal out of this, but I don't really see the issue. It's not a minute and a half or anything.

8) What channel is RFD-TV on ?
If you have DirecTV, it's channel 379. If you have Dish Network, it's channel 231.

9)I don't have RFD-TV. How do I get it?
This is a complicated question, depending on where you live and what cable provider you have.
I would provide a link to RFD-TV's website to explain everything, but their website is down right now.

10)How are Morning Joe's ratings?
Not so good.

11) Like me, did you laugh at Morning Joe's heinous new logo?
Yes, I did. Apparently MSNBC fired their graphics designer when they fired Imus.

12) Have you anticipated all the questions that I've been wanting to ask?
Probably not. If you have any more questions, post in the comments or shoot me an email. I'd be happy to help.
