Left WAAF in 3/95 for WLUP.

Randi Rhodes replaced her at WINZ AM/SuperTalk 940 last summer
after Wilde got the station into minor trouble with the FCC.
Allegedly, Wilde called the home of someone seeking permission to
broadcast a phone conversation. According to the complaint filed,
WINZ actually aired Wilde asking the man's permission, meaning he
was not notified prior to the broadcast. The FCC issued
a $4,000 fine for the incident, which Clear Channel didn't dispute.

Sidenote, Brooke Daniels who used to be with WROR/Boston in the 80's
is WINZ's nighttime personality(10pm-1am).

In between WLUP and WMMS, there was a brief morning drive
stop at WPLL-FM/Miami which she left after 5 months when WMMS'
offer came in.

No, the reason was Howard Stern. WMMS went head-to-head with Stern
and lost even more of their audience to Howard after Stern-wannabe
Wilde arrived into town...

You can hear her on-line. Fisher-owned talk station in Portland
streams 24/7(www.1080kotk.com). The show just went national 2 weeks
ago with about 20 stations already on board...
