Oh, didn’t know that history. Thanks.
Yup! From North East Radio Watch, 1998:
“Carr, meantime, is embroiled in a nasty shouting match with Don Imus. It started when Carr began poking fun at Imus’ age, and escalated when Imus accused Carr’s wife, Kathy, of having an affair with boxer Riddick Bowe. Now Kathy Carr has hired publicity-shy lawyer Alan Dershowitz to file a libel suit...”
Howie was making fun of Imus’ age, saying that “he’ll be dead
by the time his kid graduates from high school”. Imus’
pal Mike Barnicle, who’ll be filling in for what was the
Imus show the next 2 weeks, told Imus about it,
prompting the remark...and the out of court settlement.
