Abstract:

This briskly paced, definitive account follows the meteoric rise of Imus from small-time radio stations in California to his first triumphs in New York as the morning host on WNBC. Within twelve months, though, alcohol, cocaine, and ego ended Imus's glory days, and for the next eight years he battled the demons that nearly cost him all hopes of a career. But in 1979 he was back, again at WNBC, rehabilitated, and formidably armed with the weaponry of captious words, irreverent humor, and acute political intelligence.
