While Lisa G. was in the studio to discuss the Howard 100 News' headlines for the day, Howard asked her what she thought about the Don Imus news, and she replied she felt it wasn't about people like Al Sharpton, but instead about Imus and the girls he offended.
After Lisa said her opinion on the subject was relevant because she used to work for Imus as well as in the "hip-hop" industry, Howard mentioned Imus' wife, Deirdre, had a new book coming out this week, a fact he added he felt made the story all the better. Howard then explained he thought Deirdre was with Imus solely because of the publicity he got her, and that she should've just included the n-word in her new book's title given how much negative coverage her husband received the past week.
Howard went on to play more of Imus' appearance on "The Today Show" before asking everyone in the studio what they thought Imus' future in radio would be. While Robin figured Imus would go on as normal, and while Benjy and Artie predicted he'd resign at some point later in the year, Howard guessed Imus would not return from his upcoming two-week suspension.
Dominic Barbara then called in to bet Artie that Imus would be fired within the next two months, even giving Artie three-to-one odds on the wager. Dominic then asked Robin if she wanted in on the bet, but she didn't want to because she was feeling less confident about her prediction the more she heard Imus explain himself.
Before Lisa left the studio, she brought up that Benjy used the f-word on yesterday's "Wrap Up Show," even though Jon Hein's daughters, aged 9 and 12, were present.
Howard then played a clip of the incident, and Benjy insisted it wasn't "a big deal" and that no one, including Jon, was really offended by what he said.
