Since Roxanne Wilder joined the MJ Morning Show with its triumphant return to the Tampa Bay radio airwaves on Q105 in 2020, we have gotten to know she and her “perpetual fiancée” (whom MJ quickly nicknamed Dig Doug because of his work in real estate) quite well. The two have been together for nearly 14 years and engaged for about six and a half.
Over the past few years, Roxanne has dropped hints about finally getting married for a second time. She was briefly married to Paul Wilder, one of the first draft picks of the then-Tampa Bay Devil Rays, back in the early 2000s. The latest we had heard is that she and Doug were hoping to tie the knot this fall. However, the occasion came much sooner than that – and a bit unexpectedly.
Roxanne and Doug officially got married on Sunday, April 16, 2023 at Sand Key on Clearwater Beach. They had an officiant present to handle the legal strings, but it wasn’t clear if they had any other family members or friends present, aside from their two young daughters, Evelyn Jade and Davianna.
What was more shocking than their marriage was how the news was presented on the MJ Morning Show. On the morning of Thursday, April 20 at 7:36 p.m. ET, the crew was talking about a “Morons in the News” story regarding a high school student who had Photoshopped his teacher’s face onto pictures of nude female bodies. After Fester made a joke about the story, Roxanne awkwardly jumped in to exclaim, “Hey guys. I got married.” It literally came out of nowhere with no transition or Segway that she had any indication of speaking about it. She then went on to recount some of the craziness of her wedding day leading up to the ceremony.
This means that MJ will now have to refer to Dig Doug as Roxanne’s husband. It also means all four of the main crew members, aside from Andrew the producer, are now hitched with kids. Ultimately, we shouldn’t be surprised by how the news was delivered considering how erratic Roxanne seems to be at times on the air. That’s a big reason MJ had a jingle created to the tune of the old Sears jingle that says, “Come see the psycho side of Roxanne” instead of, “Come see the softer side of Sears.”
