At the job interview, he was asked if he knew how to edit audio tape. He lied and said he could. He kept the job for 11 years. In 1992, Miller got a job at WTNT (‘Sports Radio 570’) in Washington, D.C. as an overnight talk show host and Washington Redskins beat reporter. He only worked there for 3 months. In 1994 he got his first job in TV at WTTG as host of the Washington Redskins pre-game show. In 1995 he got a job at WJLA-TV as weekend sports anchor.
