Sportscaster Banned Over Cancer Joke

Controversial sportscaster Sid Rosenberg (search) has been bounced from Don Imus' wakeup show — for good this time — after joking about breast cancer.

"He will not be returning to the 'Imus In the Morning' (search) show," a spokesperson for WFAN-owner Infinity Broadcasting said Tuesday, declining to elaborate.

Rosenberg had been mysteriously AWOL from Imus' show since last Wednesday when he stunned listeners — and viewers of the MSNBC simulcast — by mocking singer Kylie Minogue's breast cancer diagnosis:

"She won't look so pretty when she's bald with one t--," Rosenberg said.

Indefinite suspension became banishment Tuesday, although "The FAN" says Rosenberg will keep his midday talk show (with Joe Benigno) and Giants game day broadcasts.

Rosenberg, 38, reportedly plans to donate one week's salary to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

A spokesperson for the Dallas-based charity declined comment.

Attempts to reach Rosenberg, his agent and Imus were unsuccessful.

The bad-boy sports-talker underwent rehab earlier this year for an admitted addiction to crack cocaine.

Four years ago, he was suspended for saying tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams were better suited for National Geographic than Playboy.

He has also called female soccer players "juiced-up dykes," claimed "faggots play tennis," and said Palestinians were "stinking animals."
