Don Imus to broadcast from The Maryland Theatre

April 21, 1999

On a recent "Imus in the Morning" show, host Don Imus said he hated Hillary Clinton, called Secretary of Defense William Cohen a "wimp," National Security Adviser Sandy Berger a "fat nitwit" and NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw a "dork." He said he hated to get personal, but after all, it was the Imus show.

The Imus show, with all its bile and vinegar, will broadcast live from The Maryland Theatre Friday, April 23, from 6 to 10 a.m.

Imus, a member of National Association of Broadcasters Broadcasting Hall of Fame, draws senators, authors and artists as guests on his show. He also regularly talks to his brother, Fred, and goes on and on about his young son, Wyatt.

Imus is an author himself. His novel, "God's Other Son," was on the New York Times best-seller list for three months, according to information on the MSNBC Web site, He has helped to raise nearly $10 million to benefit the CJ foundation for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and the Tomorrow's Children Fund.


The I-Man recently berated comic Rob Bartlett, saying he had invested thousands of dollars - tens of thousands of dollars - in Bartlett's short-lived Broadway show.

"I'm sorry. I'm in a bad mood," he said. "I'm always in a bad mood," he added.

An estimated more than 10 million radio listeners and 200,000 MSNBC listeners don't mind a bit.
