Boomer Esiason Could Replace Don Imus

AOL SPORTS - New York, NY, USA - The New York Post is reporting that former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason is the leading candidate to become the permanent replacement for Don Imus, the radio legend who was fired for calling the Rutgers women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos."

CBS has been on the hunt for a radio broadcaster ever since Don Imus was sacked over racist remarks in April. Now insiders are whispering that ex-N.Y. Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason will permanently replace Imus in the morning-show slot on CBS-owned WFAN. Boomer, who went into broadcasting after retiring from his football career in 1997, was the first tryout after Imus was fired.

Esiason is a smart, articulate guy, and he could probably do a fine job with the assignment. There is one wrinkle in all this, though: Newsday is reporting that Imus's radio career might not be dead yet, and that some insiders think he's going to get his old job back. That is extremely hard for me to believe, but the mere speculation is enough to keep Esiason in limbo.
