Get ready for Don Imus.

The radio shock jock, who was fired in April by CBS Radio and MSNBC after he called the Rutgers University women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos," has reportedly reached a financial deal to return to the airwaves.

According to Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post, Imus could be back behind a microphone around Dec. 1. Citadel Broadcasting, which owns 243 radio stations, including ABC Radio Networks, plans to give Imus a morning show on New York's WABC. The program would be offered in syndication to other stations around the country.

Contractual details are likely be finalized within a week, and Imus is expected to be paid millions of dollars.

According to Kurtz, Imus also has discussed the possibility that the new Fox Business Network would carry his radio show.
