Imus in the Morning is an American radio show hosted by Don Imus on Westwood One.Over the course of the show's history, it has previously been simulcast on various television networks.Originally considered a shock jock, Imus turned his show more towards politics and news and gained public influence as a result. Among the cream of the press who regularly appeared on the show were Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert, Dan Rather, Brian Williams, Andrea Mitchell, Cokie Roberts, Sam Donaldson, Howard Fineman, Mike Barnicle, Frank Rich, Jonathan Alter and Jeff Greenfield.During the 1990s, Imus in the Morning became increasingly important as a useful, non-traditional platform for politicians to express their views and gain exposure. In 1996 as MSNBC was being launched, the original plan for weekday morning programming was to rerun the previous night's prime-time shows.In comparison, Stern attracted more than 8.25 million listeners on half as many stations and Rush Limbaugh attracts 13.5 million listeners).
On September 3, 1979, Imus started off his first program back on WNBC with his old character/voice/bit, "The Reverend Billy Sol Hargis".The program was a huge success on cable news for quite a while.Bohrman (who Imus referred to as "Moosebutt") produced the first few dozen programs, then hired Terry Irving to become the day-to-day Executive Producer of the television version of the program.Kiley also quoted former CBS News anchor and Face the Nation moderator Bob Schieffer as saying, "I don’t know anyone in Washington who doesn’t listen to Imus or watch him on TV.I get more feedback off my spots on Imus than from my own shows."
