Her voice has been synonymous with Classic Rock in New York for four decades. Carol Miller, with a one-part powerful, one-part silky voice, has been a distinctly unique combination for the genre. DJs are taught to speak to their audiences individually, but Miller mastered that trait.
After a brief stint at WNEW-FM, she established herself in the mid-1970s at WPLJ.
The 1980s, and through the 1990s, meant a return to the legendary WNEW. That led to her current run at Clear Channel’s WAXQ/Q104.3 since 2004.
Her radio journey began as a girl growing up on Long Island, hearing the WMCA Good Guys and WABC All Americans.
“I was one of those kids that listened to my transistor all the time …I really loved it, but I never thought of it as a career because it was not what a girl would do—be a fun Cousin Brucie type of person.”
By the time Miller arrived at the University of Pennsylvania that all changed—sort of.
