Radio Host Imus Says He Has Prostate Cancer

Rate This

Controversial radio host Don Imus has revealed that he has stage 2 prostate cancer.

He made the announcement on his radio show Monday, but didn't reveal any details about his prognosis, Fox News reported. Imus did say he had full confidence "his doctors will beat it."

"The day you find out is fine. But the next morning when you get up, your knees are shaking. I didn't think I could make it to work," he told listeners.

Imus suggested that his prostate cancer could be the result of stress, Fox News reported. After a 2007 scandal in which he used a racially insensitive comment to describe the championship-winning Rutger's Women's Basketball Team, Imus was fired from CBS. He was hired by ABC later that year.
