WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., April 14 (UPI) -- U.S. talk radio personality Randi Rhodes has returned to her former stomping grounds at WJNO-AM 1290 in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Rhodes quit her last gig at Air America after the company suspended her for making "abusive" remarks about Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and former Rep. Geraldine Ferraro, D-N.Y., at a recent sold-out appearance on behalf of the liberal talk radio network and Clear Channel station KKGN-San Francisco.
Without offering details, Rhodes told the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post there was more to her dispute with Air America than the network's disapproval of her remarks.
She said when Air America suspended her, she thought it meant her contract had been terminated, so she quit to "clear the way" for other career opportunities.
"We have our biggest star back," the newspaper quoted WJNO Programming Director Brian Mudd as saying.
Rhodes worked for WJNO for 10 years, starting in 1994, and then went to Air America when the network was established in 2004.
Rhodes remained on the air at WJNO through Air America.
Her WJNO-AM show is being syndicated by the Nova M Radio Network, the Post said.
