Don Imus and Central Park West are no longer on the same wavelength.

Eight months after his Fox Business show ended, the veteran radio personality is looking to sell his penthouse at 75 Central Park West, which he and his wife Deirdre owned for several decades.

Kathryn Steinberg of Brown Harris Stevens is listing the two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom pad for $19.8 million. She declined to comment on the identity of her client but said the views from the pad were “as good as any I’ve ever seen.”

The duplex has vaulted ceilings, arched windows overlooking Central Park, a wood-burning fireplace, a paneled library, two personal offices and a gym, according to the listing. It also comes with an additional first-floor guest apartment, which Imus snapped up for $2.03 million in 2006.

The building is home to a handful of celebrities, including Hank Azaria, best known as the voice of Moe Szyslak on “The Simpsons,” and Amy Irving, the star of that 1988 film, “Crossing Delancey. Irving bought her apartment there for $9 million late last year.

The radio host, who still hosts a syndicated radio talk show called “Imus in the Morning,” has been suffering from health issues, including a battle with prostate cancer in 2009. While it’s not clear why he’s selling the apartment, he has said that he may ultimately return to his native Southwest post-retirement.
