Sharp-tongued radio host Don Imus has signed a multiyear deal with Fox Business Network to simulcast his popular radio program, the network announced Thursday.

Imus, who recently ended a similar arrangement with RFD-TV, a rural cable network, will join the FBN lineup Oct. 5.

The network will air "Imus in the Morning" from 3 to 6 a.m. on the West Coast, replacing part of "Fox Business Morning" and "Money for Breakfast." Anchors Jenna Lee, Connell McShane and Ashley Webster will appear during Imus' program to report on breaking financial news. Imus also plans to incorporate more business news into his program..

The move amounts to a significant public comeback for the controversial "shock jock," who was dropped by CBS Radio and MSNBC two years ago after making derogatory comments about the Rutgers University women's basketball team.
