Don Imus on Fox Business? Maybe not such a bad idea

Fox Business Network is in talks to hire Don Imus, and some, including Henry Blodget, see that as a sign that the fledgling cable outlet is on the ropes after less than two years of existence. On the other hand, however, it may well be a programming masterstroke.

FBN is reportedly looking to replace a three-hour block of morning programming with a TV simulcast of the Imus in the Morning radio show. MSNBC carried the program until 2006, when its host got himself fired and publicly excoriated when he described female basketball players as "nappy-headed hoes."
