Imus apparently also has a Radio-Thon on Thursday and Friday that he
does annually. This was the reason for the delay.
He was on the Today Show this AMas well. The MSNBC-NBC-CBS marketing
machine is grinding and grinding, undoubtedly to a lot of people's
benefit - maybe even the Rutger's Women's Team.
