Former Westporter Don Imus Dead at 79 Image
Former Westport resident and controversial radio talk host Don Imus died today in a hospital in College Station, Texas where he had been hospitalized since Christmas Eve. No cause of death was announced, but he had long complained of breathing problems and several years ago announced he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He and his wife Deidre had been Westport residents since 1997, living in a waterfront estate (above) on Beachside Avenue. They sold it in 2009 for $14.4 million. They both maintained a low profile here, but Imus did show up at the Westport Library twice when his wife promoted her books. Undated file photo
