Response to malaise (Reply #8)

16. What was the name of the guy in the show that was

taken off the air before Imus's show was created? An even more bizarre runup to Ted Koppel's Nightline.

The conservative brute of a host would stride around a open floor surrounded by audience, grab and kiss a couple of women in a symbolic rape, then verbally eviscerate some nerd chosen for his scrawny build and inability to express his liberal ideology coherently.

I believe that obnoxious jerk crashed pretty badly after his brief time with his own show. ?

In any case, I'm guessing Imus's not-so-secret moderate decency and good sense in a shock-jock package was the producers' attempt to serve the same audience far more responsibly. Imus moved to a show on an agricultural network. I watched a bit a couple times while scrolling past, a sad comedown, but Kearns Goodwin was appearing on one of them. Nice.
