IMUS DAILY E-MAILMonday, September 29

Join us at 6am eastern for IMUS in the Morning on

MSNBC. We’ll have all the days news headlines every

fifteen minutes, including reports from NBC News

correspondents around the world.

Coming up Monday on Imus in the Morning:

President Bush and his administration will

spend the weekend trying to win support for

their plan to rebuild Iraq. The President is

meeting with Russian President Vladimir at

Camp David. Bush says he won’t press the

Russian leader directly for cash or troops

to help stabilize Iraq, but will try to

smooth over past differences with the

veto-holding member of the U.N. Security

Council. But how close is the U.S. to

actually getting other countries to pitch

in with the multi-billion project? Imus

and his guests will talk about that. Besides

the fiery debates on Iraq, the economy

and the campaigns that are sure to crop up,

Imus and the gang will also be going at it

over a more personal issue. The week of the

big fight has arrived. Sid and Bernie are

going toe-to-toe on October 2. The remaining

few days leading up to the event will be

full of rhetoric, training, threats, promises

and predictions. It is sure to be one of the

broadcast’s most, shall we say, “provocative”

weeks and something you won’t want to miss.

At 8:29am eastern, NBC Nightly News Anchor

Tom Brokaw will join Imus. Tom Brokaw

is possibly the most recognizable face

in broadcast journalism and one of the

most respected men in his field. He has

seen first hand what is happening in

Iraq, Afghanistan, on the campaign

trails and in the White House. Imus

will ask Tom to share insight that

you don’t see on other news
