NEW YORK — MSNBC said Wednesday it will drop its simulcast of the ‘‘Imus in the Morning’’ radio program, responding to growing outrage over the radio host’s racial slur against the Rutgers women’s basketball team.
    ‘‘This decision comes as a result of an ongoing review process, which initially included the announcement of a suspension. It also takes into account many conversations with our own employees,’’ NBC news said in a statement.
    The decision also was announced on air.
