    A popular DJ on Minnesota Public Radio station 89.3 The Current is taking a leave of absence after revealing that she’s been victimized by a stalker. Weekday afternoon host Mary Lucia announced the leave in a blog post Wednesday on the St. Paul-based station’s website,www.thecurrent.org. She said she’s been stalked at home and at work by someone she does not know, forcing her to file restraining orders, install security cameras and scan through police photo ID lineups. “I’m taking time off to deal with this issue and take care of myself,” she said in the post. Other Current staff members have been assigned to fill Lucia’s shift during her temporary absence. An MPR spokeswoman said Lucia would not comment further on the situation. In her post, Lucia promised she would be back to work soon.
