Technology Evangelist Podcast to Replace Imus on CBS
Ed Kohler

UPDATE: the official press release is now available.

This is supposed to be under embargo until Midnight EST, but heck, it involves us, so you're hearing it here first.

Things are moving very fast at Technology Evangelist, and an amazing opportunity has been presented to us that we simply couldn't pass up. We're extraordinarily busy, so here is just a quick note for now with the news:

Starting Monday, the Technology Evangelist Podcast will replace Don Imus on CBS radio until a permanent replacement can be found.

Shows will be broadcast live from Minneapolis, and simulcast on affiliates now carrying Imus' show. The MSNBC video simulcast remains dead for now.

Imus Out - TE In

We have a lot to do before Monday to get ready for the first show.

Wow, it feels like we're running 11 days behind.

What an amazing opportunity. It's really been neat watching the site develop. I am sure that CBS listeners will love the show just as much as your internet fans. Good luck with your new venue.

What IS this, some kinda bad JOKE or spoof?

The NY Post reported:
"Starting Monday, WFAN's "Mike and the Mad Dog"-Mike Francesa and Chris Russo-will do double duty by filling in for Imus and continuing their "afternoon drive" sports radio program.

The situation is temporary while CBS figures out its next step."

Don't see anything about this show....

Does "Techonology Evangelist" imply some future morality in the technology wolrd?

"Wow, it feels like we're running 11 days behind."

That would have been April Fool's Day, folks. There's your joke.

Congratulations. You guys deserve it, and you're far, far more interesting than that idiot Imus.

Imus.... What Price should he pay?

Rev Al, perhaps you should cast the 1st stone, just as YOU did regarding your comments of the Yale Soccer Team.
Rev Jessy, you the second stone... as your marriage vows meant nothing, with your romp in the hay.

CBS.....How many must die for YOU to support "THE CONSTITUTION". You decision was based solely on economics ! Nothing more Nothing Less !

I have listened to Imus once...didn't care for him then, and don't care for him now. However as a Vietnam Veteran, I supported his rights then, and I support his rights NOW!

CBS ....You R Wrong !!!

14. Posted by: Jim on April 15, 2007 4:43 PM:

Wow! Won't all those Imus fans be surprised!

Good luck.
