    News Corp.'s Fox Business Network is in talks to bring radio personality Don Imus aboard as a TV host in a bid to draw viewers, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Under one scenario, Mr. Imus could take over the network's 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. hours, the people said. No agreement has been reached.

    Who want's to listen to Don Imus? The only good part of his show is that guy who does all the impressions. Don just sits there, complains and mumbles incoherently while the staff all laugh. Gag me with a fork!
    I watch Dave Ramsey on FBN but this is almost as bad as when Fox News tried to bring on that no talent FM "Puker" ManCow in the morning.

    That's because Fox Business Network is attracting about 357 viewers a day.

    I have no interest in Imus, I would not watch or listen.

    He would be up against CONSERVATIVE Joe Scarborough's morning show on MSNBC.
