Bernard 'Bernie' McGuirk : Fox News Scoops the Imus Poop

Those of us who've watched Imus In the Morning are familiar with this infamous three-man camera shot.  It's (left to right) Don Imus, his news anchor Charles McCord, and producer Bernard McGuirk, probably verbally abusing someone important.Guess who's back -- on Fox News Channel's Hannity & Colmes, no less. Why, it's Bernard 'Bernie' McGuirk, rearing his ever-hot head on the very station he has said the most dispicable things about. Bernie McGuirk's exclusive interview with the "Odd Couple" of cable news is scheduled for Thursday, April 26th at 9 p.m. (ET).

Of course last week, Don Imus retained power attorney Martin Garbus, says Business Week. The speculation is that Imus plans to fight CBS for the greatest possible severance package. Imus had recently signed a five-year deal with CBS, which was set to begin paying him nearly $10 million a year.

It doesn't look good right now for Don Imus in terms of moving to Sirius Satellite Radio, though. The buzz is that Imus media powerhouse pal Mel Karmazin, who is Viacom's head of Sirius, consulted with his top shock jock Howard Stern about the idea of Imus joining their team. Sounds like Howard Stern said heck-e naw!

But a year ago, Howard Stern did "bless" Don Imus's brother, Fred Imus, to get a show over at Sirius.

It's sad how the chickens are coming to roost for grumpy Don Imus and his angrier sidekick, Bernard McGuirk. Don has said terrible things about Howard Stern over the years. A month ago, there's no way that Imus could have imagined his radio nemesis, Howard Stern, would be standing between him and his next career move.

Imus will be back on the air by Oct. of this year. There's too many fans whose mornings have been left void without his commentary. And Bernie and Charles McCord are key aspects of his show. We can only hope that the Iman comes bac -- it's rough watching the local news in the a.m.
