Controversial radio talk show host, Don Imus, announced this morning that he has stage II prostrate cancer.
Prognosis is good, he says.
On his WABC morning show, Imus told his listeners, according to Richard Huff of the New York Daily News:
That he had full faith that, with his doctors’ help, he will beat the cancer.
Laurie Cantillo, program director for WABC-AM, confirmed that Imus received his diagnosis last Wednesday.
Prostate cancer is considered “stage II” if it can be seen with a digital rectal exam but has not progressed beyond the prostate. Imus says that his “prognosis couldn’t be better.”
This is the latest in a string of shocking developments for the 68-year-old shock jock. In 2007, Imus was fired by CBS Radio for his racial slurs against the Rutgers women’s basketball team. MSNBC followed suit and canceled their simulcast of his program.
New York-based WABC Radio hired a somewhat “reformed” Imus later that same year, and his new show is centered on politics and the media.
Prostate cancer afflicts over 200,000 men a year, according to WebMD, and is curable if caught early enough.
