Miller was evening personality at WLS-AM in its Top 40 heyday, beginning in 1977. Beginning in the mid-1980s, he was also heard on a simulcast with WLS-FM. He jumped to the FM side full time in early 1986 when WLS-FM split from its AM sister and became WYTZ-FM (Z95), a CHR/Top 40 outlet designed to compete more effectively with WBBM-FM (B96), which had the same format. He left the station in 1991 when WYTZ changed formats and joined WMAQ-TV as a part-time meteorologist (he also had a two year stint beforehand in the same role at WFLD-TV.)
Miller also hosted a local countdown show at WYTZ.
