The radio personality, who returns to the airwaves Dec. 3 on WABC-AM, will debut the same day on the seven-year-old cable and satellite television station that caters to viewers with homes on the range, the Rural Media Group, Inc., announced Wednesday.

The radio show will be simulcast on weekdays from 6-9 a.m., and will be rebroadcast from 6-9 p.m. each evening, said Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of the Rural Media Group. The program will also be available to RFD’s nearly 30 million homes through on-demand services, Gottsch said.

Two weeks ago, Citadel Broadcasting Corp. announced it was bringing Imus back to host a New York-based morning drive time show. The cranky Hall of Fame broadcaster was fired eight months earlier after his “nappy-headed hos” crack regarding the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.

RFD, 홀덤 with studios in Nashville, has a mostly rural audience that receives programming like “The Cattle Show,” “National Tractor Pulling” and the “Largent and Sons Hereford Cattle Auction.”

“Don’s passion and understanding of rural America fits in so well with our ongoing effort to bridge city and country folks with this channel,” Gottsch said. His station launched in December 2000, billed as the first 24/7 television network dedicated to rural America.

The previous incarnation of “Imus in the Morning” was simulcast on MSNBC, which dumped the show shortly after Imus’ ill-conceived comment.By Larry McShane

According to WXPI in Pittsburgh, Pa., police say that Acosta was not supposed to be at the Pittsburgh Convention Center during the “American Idol” auditions last week. When asked to vacate the premises, the report states she “refused to leave and became combative.” Acosta is being charged with trespassing and resisting arrest. Acosta admitted to ABC affiliate WTAE in Pittsburgh that she has been traveling to various cities and attempting to audition for the show, and it’s her dream to make it as a singer. “I have a stack this big of airline tickets,” Acosta said to WTAE. “I’ve been to California everywhere. I’ve been to Texas. I’ve been to Arizona. St. Louis. I’ve been to Denver, Colo., here, New York — I can keep going.” The “American Idol” hopeful told both Pittsburgh stations the police report is wrong. She admitted to being questioned by security at the audition, but says one member of the staff told her she was not trespassing and went upstairs to clear the matter. According to Acosta, she was arrested after that person left. She also strongly denies the claim in the police report that she said, “I’m not leaving, this is my dream, my life is ruined.” “I said, ‘I wasted almost $10,000 this summer traveling.’ I’m pretty much broke until I work this weekend,” she told WTAE. “I think it’s going to be better anyways. Christina Aguilera (a ‘Voice’ judge) is from here, so I’d like to compare myself to her, and I love her,” Acosta said to WTAE.
