The woman many progressives prefer to wake up to on their morning drive, radio host with equal parts smarts and sarcasm, came out as a lesbian on her show Friday.

It appears Stephanie was inspired by one of  Friday's guests, recently out country star Chely Wright. Steph began priming her listenership with mysterious Tweets a few hours before she made the announcment.  

Miller, who had sometimes joked about having crushes on men, such as fellow liberal commentator Keith Olbermann, tweeted, “Mama’s got something to tell you,”  prior to coming out. After making her statement, she received numerous supportive comments from listeners, in both phone calls and online posts.

Miller, 48, is a former stand-up comic and for a time had a television show on MSNBC. She grew up in a conservative Republican family — her late father, attorney and congressman William Miller, was Barry Goldwater’s running mate in the 1964 presidential election. Goldwater, who has a gay grandson, voiced gay-supportive positions late in his life.
