About Don Imus
Don Imus is an American radio host, writer, landscape photographer, humorist, and philanthropist with an estimated net worth of $40 million.
Born John Donald Imus Jr., he grew up on a cattle ranch in Arizona and quit school when he was 17. Following short stints as a military bugler and railroad brakeman, the radio rabble-rouser took to the airwaves in 1968, disc jockeying for a small Palmdale, Calif., station.
Fired for saying “hell” on air, Imus moved his on-air pranks to Sacramento, Cleveland and finally New York City in 1971. After the shock jock’s morning show was canceled in 2007, thanks to his disparaging comments about the Rutgers women’s basketball team, it was later picked up by WABC under a five-year deal worth up to $40 million.
