   John Donald "Don" Imus, Jr. was born in Riverside, California

Imus is host of the nationally syndicated radio talk show, Imus in the Morning
that originated locally on WNBC radio in New York City in December 1971.

Due to failing health and commitments on his ranch, Imus has been taking
more and more time off from the program, often only working the first half
of the shows with the second halves containing pre-recorded material
hosted by Connell McShane.

Don Imus served in the United States Marine Corps for three years and
later worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad before becoming a disc
jockey. He established the Imus Ranch for Children.
