Will Imus Affect ‘Morning Joe?’

imusAs Don Imus‘ first air date at Fox Business Network approaches, NY Oberver’s Felix Gillette profiles how Imus and his previous network affiliation might change the dynamic of the time slot, saying that FBN is “unleashing Don Imus to compete against NBC, the media company that shunned him in his time of crisis.”

Gillette writes:
