Randi Rhodes was born Randi Buten. Even though she is currently divorced, she has legally gone by her married name "Robertson" ever since she was married to the independent producer, Jim Robertson in 1994. She took her pseudonym from Ozzy Osbourne's guitar player, who she said was one of the greats because of his professionalism and his daily dedication to practice. Randi spent three years in the Air Force as an aircraft mechanic, and occasionally talks about her experience as a truck driver too. She has also been a mother to her niece, Jessica ever since Randi lost her sister to breast cancer.
Randi's radio career began as a DJ, and she has been working in radio for nearly 30 years.
