The chief executive of the media company that is believed to be on the brink of returning Don Imus to broadcast radio said today that Mr. Imus's firing by CBS Radio and MSNBC last spring was sufficient punishment for his derogatory comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team and that he deserved another chance.
"He did something wrong," Farid Suleman, the chief executive of Citadel Broadcasting, said in a telephone interview. "He didn't break the law. He's more than paid the price for what he did. I think he should be evaluated by what he does going forward."
