(WCMH) — Radio shock jock Don Imus died Friday, nearly two years after his retirement from broadcasting, NBC News reported.
He was 79.
Imus died Friday at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in College Station, Texas. He was hospitalized on Christmas Eve, a family representative said.
“Don loved and adored Deirdre, who unconditionally loved him back, loved spending his time watching Wyatt become a highly-skilled, champion rodeo rider and calf roper, and loved and supported Zachary, who first met the Imus family at age 10 when he participated in the Imus Ranch program for kids with cancer, having battled and overcome leukemia, eventually becoming a member of the Imus family and Don and Deirdre’s second son,” his family said in a statement.
