When comedian Stephanie Miller arrived in town about a year and a half ago only to get a call from talk radio station KFI, she was more than a little underwhelmed. "I never thought about doing talk radio," Miller said. "To me talk radio was like old gray-haired guys talking about the budget."

Stephanie Miller--the comic radio host whose sketches and running commentary on "The Stephanie Miller Show" offered a liberal take on politics and topical issues--is leaving KABC-AM (790). The show, whose local run was quietly canceled Thursday, will air its final installment on KABC tonight at 7, although it will continue in national syndication by ABC Radio Today. The program had spent 2 1/2 years in KABC's 7-9 p.m. slot. Executives at ABC Radio Today did not return calls by press time.

Stephanie Miller, a liberal voice on local talk radio for much of the 1990s, is returning to the L.A. airwaves next week. KTLK-AM (1150), local outlet for the left-leaning Air America network, is picking up Miller's 7-month-old syndicated show and will air it live, weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m., beginning next Monday. That may take some getting used to for Miller's former fans, who heard her at night when she worked at talk outlets KFI-AM (640) and KABC-AM (790).

Late-night TV. Only the Citadel is harder for women to get into. But this fall, two more women are going to take a run at late-night in syndication--former radio host Stephanie Miller and actress and model Lauren Hutton. "The Stephanie Miller Show" premieres Sept. 15 on KCOP-TV Channel 13 and will air weekdays at midnight. Like "Late Show With David Letterman" and "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Miller will tape a live show nightly. How is she different? "I have breasts," she says.

Peppy and raring to go, Stephanie Miller bounds out of an hours-old black minivan on a near-empty KABC-AM (790) parking lot, and rushes to the passenger side. It's less than a half-hour to showtime, and this June night she brings special company to her radio table--another Stephanie Miller, her mother.

Stephanie Miller, whose radio talk show is syndicated in about 20 markets by ABC Radio Today, learned late Monday that the syndicator was pulling the show at least temporarily, if not indefinitely. The action, according to sources close to the show, was taken so that ABC's legal department could investigate whether recent comments she made on her Web site and to various print and television media put her in breach of contract.

I don't often laugh at Stephanie Miller, but I did when she claimed she doesn't offend "from a place of mean-spiritedness" ("Queen of Some Media," July 12). Where does she get the idea that everybody else is mean-spirited but her? And I wouldn't call her show "sexually charged," as author Judith Michaelson does. She may do sexual shtick and push that envelope, but her mouth, irreverence and mean-spiritedness make for a decidedly un-sexy show. STEPHEN FOSTER Los Angeles

With reference to Stephanie Miller's article "Mere Men Are No Match for Puppy Love" (Laugh Lines, May 13): There are many men who are sensitive and caring with the ability to know and understand their feelings, and with the compassion to hear a woman's needs and feelings. These men are communicative and can discuss subjects of interest besides sports. I did not appreciate the inference that this is the way men behave. I believe Ms. Miller has not met the right man or men. HOWARD D. WASSERMAN Los Angeles

Re "Syndicator Takes Stephanie Miller's Show Off the Air" (by Judith Michaelson,March 8): Why did it take so long? If, as Miller contends, KABC pulled her show because of "racy content," I would contend that someone was being inordinately polite. It didn't take many of her programs to conclude that a more accurate and printable characterization of her show would be "insipidly inane and raunchy." It should come as no surprise that KABC ratings have dropped. I suggest that even more housecleaning is in order for KABC to regain its ratings of a few years ago, when we were entertained with Ken and Bob, Ken and Peter, etc. Fortunately, you still have the professionalism of Dennis Prager and Larry Elder; without them you would really be in trouble.

POP/ROCK Jackson Leaves Hospital: Michael Jackson smiled and waved to cheering fans Tuesday as he walked out of a New York hospital after a six-night stay. The 37-year-old pop star, who collapsed a week ago at the Beacon Theater while rehearsing for an HBO concert special that was to have aired last Sunday, stepped into a white van and was taken from Beth Israel Medical Center North Division to an undisclosed location.
