You'll follow the quick rise of Imus from small-time stations in California to his first triumphs in New York as the morning host on WNBC. In a year, drugs, alcohol, and ego ended the glory, and, for the next eight, Imus battled the demons that had nearly cost him all hopes of a career. But in 1979, he was back at WNBC, introducing his Right Reverend Dr. Billy Sol Hargus to New York.
With a battery of exclusive personal interviews with Imus's friends and associates as well as with classic selections from the Imus radio archives, this biography offers a detailed, balanced portrait of a public personality and a private man: The one, the only, the disputatious and inimitable Don Imus.
