Doug’s first job behind the mike was doing newscasts, play-by-play, interview programs, and a weekly big band show on WBAU-FM, Adelphi University’s radio station in Garden City, NY. After graduation, he continued in radio providing sports and news reports for New York City’s all-news outlets, WINS and WCBS, and became a production assistant for CBS Sports’ “NFL Today” and “College Football Today.”
In 1988, Miles hosted a nighttime jazz show called “90 Jazz Place” on Tampa’s WUSF-FM and received his BA in Professional and Technical Writing from the University of South Florida. He went on to become a copywriter, newscaster, and big band show host at St. Pete’s WLFF AM-680, a sports anchor and talk-show host on Plant City’s Sportsradio 910 WFNS, and host of “All Sports Magazine,” a national talk show on the Sun Radio Network.
In 1994 he moved to Sarasota and did weekend deejay work for oldies WAMR 1320 and Hot Country WCTQ 106.5, and then managed the city’s NewsTalk 1220 WSRQ. He began hosting “The Big Band Files” music show on 96.5 WSLR-LP in 2010 and, a few years later, on Sarasota’s WTMY for a couple of years before the station was sold and changed format.
Today (2017), Doug continues to cover the Venice Indians high school football games for Englewood’s WENG and host his popular “Book Talk” and “Sports Talk” podcasts, both of which are available on iTunes and his website, dougmilesmedia.com.
