Johnny Dollar has the video from this morning’s Fox and Friends where Mancow says he was supposed to be doing the “Imus slot” on WFAN but it was killed because of an appearance he did on The O’Reilly Factor.
Gretchen Carlson said that that would have meant that he would have been up against them (Fox and Friends) but I don’t think that was a given. Since Imus’ dismissal only six WFAN broadcasts have been simulcast on MSNBC; three by David Gregory and three by Jim Cramer. The rest have not. Given that FNC has some sort of deal with Mancow, he would probably be contractually prohibited from appearing on MSNBC’s air. Even if he wasn’t, it’s doubtful MSNBC would put him on as a tryout given that he’s an FNC regular.
