Radio host Don Imus has announced on his show that he has stage II prostate cancer
. The National Cancer Institute
describes this as the stage at which "cancer is more advanced than in stage I, but has not spread outside the prostate." Imus last made national news with unfortunate remarks
about the Rutgers' women's basketball team in 2007 which led to his firing, an apology, and rehiring
, but is best known for decades of obstreperous radio work
and some indelicate jokes he told in the presence of President Bill Clinton
at the Radio/TV Correspondents Association Annual Dinner in 1996.
