TUCSON, ARIZ. (AP) - A spokesman for Don Imus says that the controversial radio personality's brother, Fred Imus, has died in his Tucson home. He was 69.
Fred Imus co-hosted his own satellite radio show on Sirius XM called "Fred's Trailer Park Bash" and wrote country songs.
Matthew Hiltzik, a spokesman for Don Imus, said Tuesday that Fred Imus was found dead inside his trailer in Tucson, Ariz., on Saturday. He says it's believed that he died in his sleep.
Hiltzik says the Imus brothers were "very close" and that Fred Imus often was a guest on his brother's own radio show, ending each call with, "I love you."
Fred Imus, who was twice divorced, is survived by three sons.
