The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Don Imus’s 3,400-acre cattle ranch in the Pecos River Valley east of Santa Fe has sold to RFD-TV founder Patrick Gottsch. The host of Imus in the Morning was employed by RFDTV from 2007 to 2009. Imus and his wife, Deirdre, founded the ranch in 1998 as a 501(c)(3) organization to benefit children with cancer. With more than 20 structures, the ranch features 29,000 square feet of living quarters as well as 35,000 square feet of barns, garages, and other improvements, including a 10-bedroom hacienda, a radio studio, and a full-fledged Western town. Craig Huitfeldt of Bell Tower Keller-Williams represented the Imuses. The ranch was originally listed for $35 million, reduced to $29.9 million, and subsequently relisted for $19.9 million. It ended up on the auction block before Gottsch bought it. The final sales price was not disclosed.
