Radio host Don Imus has prostate cancer.

The shock jock made the announcement on his radio show Monday morning. Imus learned of the diagnosis last Wednesday, said Laurie Cantillo, program director for WABC-AM of New York. A bone scan indicated that the cancer has not spread, she said, and doctors believe it is fully treatable. Imus has been part of the syndicated show based in New York since 2007. He was fired by CBS earlier that year for making racial on-air comments about members of the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.
