Don Imus Donald Imus nappy headed ho Above the Law blog.jpgJust like a certain Cleary-visiting Glamour editor, Don Imus isn’t a fan of the “nappy hair” look for women. And his right to say so, on the radio airwaves, is contractually protected. From the Associated Press:

Don Imus has reached a settlement with CBS over his multimillion-dollar contract after his being fired from his morning talk show and is in negotiations with WABC radio to resume his broadcasting career there, CBS and a person familiar with the negotiations said today.

Mr. Imus and CBS Radio “have mutually agreed to settle claims that each had against the other regarding the Imus radio program on CBS,” that network and Martin Garbus, a lawyer for Mr. Imus, said in a joint statement today.

The settlement terms are undisclosed, but the rumor on Drudge is that Imus is getting $20 million. That buys a lot of Hohos.
