Did you hear the one about the DJ who went on maternity leave–and never returned? That’s what Lisa Paige decided to do. Paige was a charter member of NOW FM as their midday jock.

All Access reports Paige chose to return to radio after giving birth, but not in New York. Instead, she is headed for Dallas, although details of the exact job weren’t known.

WXRK flipped to NOW FM in March 2009.

Paige’s decision comes as CBS Radio hired Eutopia a.k.a. Eunice Franklin for part-time work at NOW.  Franklin has had stops at the Internet version of Pulse 87 and Long Island’s Party 105/WPTY.

But assistant program director/music director Rob Wagman tells All Access that the station is still searching for its next midday host.
