Haylee was born in Reno, NV and was raised in multiple cities across the U.S. before finally settling in Sacramento in 2011. She is currently attending American River College for Commercial Music Business – a career path that she has always wanted to pursue – and radio seemed to be the perfect starting point. Haylee became an intern for The End in January 2016 and joined The Hit Squad a year later, thoroughly enjoying her time working in promotions. When she’s not at work or school, you can most likely find her at a concert or movie theater as she’s a major entertainment junkie!
Ivan is a Sacramento native with a driven passion for music as well as the newest addition to the Hit Squad.

He graduated from Rio Americano High School and currently attends American River College; working towards his Music Business and Audio Engineering degree. Ivan has always involved music in his life since a very young age. Following his uncle's footsteps as a DJ, Ivan would like to make producing and DJ’ing a profession in his life.

He is currently an editor for Noiseprn.com and Hofisbetter.com as well as an ambassador for CID Entertainment. He is also on the promotion team for HOF.

AJ was born and raised in San Diego, CA where he was bitten by the radio bug at an early age and has been working promotions and On-Air voiceover work ever since he was a baby! His love for media grew through High School and College and graduated from Humboldt State University in 2013 (Go Lumberjacks!) with a bachelor's degree in Film. He moved to Sacramento in 2014 with his College Sweetheart Sarah, where he began his radio career in sales but fell in love with promotions and became part of the Hit Squad Team in the winter of 2016. On his free time, AJ loves playing with his "fur baby" Candy at Sutter's Landing Dog Park, indulging in Midtown's food, art, and cultural scene and loves jogging late at night around downtown when it's cooler out. 106.5 is his favorite station because of the DJs, the music and most importantly the listeners because he feels that without their support and turnout the events wouldn't be made possible. So next time you see AJ at one of our events, come up and give him a high five and say hey!
Jorge was born and raised in Dixon, CA, a small town 25 miles from Sacramento. He is currently attending Sacramento State where he’s studying criminal justice (A bit of a curve ball). He has always loved music and the way songs tell stories and how music can give people such an array of emotions. When he was in high school he listened to this station every morning. He always believed he wanted to work in media but thought it wasn’t a practical decision. It wasn’t until January of 2016 when he became an intern for The Wake Up Call, then it all made sense and he threw practical out the window and decided to pursue a career in media. He recently discovered a love for photography. Social media is his guilty pleasure along with reality TV, you’ll always find him on Instagram so make sure to give him a follow @jayttv22. When Jorge isn’t at work or school he enjoys taking weekend trips to Los Angeles as frequent as possible, going to football, baseball, and basketball games, or going to country concerts and music festivals. Make sure to say hey at the next event you see him!

She grew up around all different kinds of music and she knew in high school that she wanted to pursue something in the music industry. Lennon graduated from Full Sail University in December 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Music Business. Ever since she moved to Sacramento, this station has been her her favorite station! In the fall of 2016, Lennon became an intern for the Wake Up Call and worked with the promotions team. Later that winter she became a member of The Hit Squad and loves it! Lennon won’t be found without her phone in her hand and chocolate coconut almonds close by. She loves her coffee and cannot go a day without it! She enjoys meeting new people and helping others out in whatever way she can! Lennon is a friendly and very compassionate person, so next time you see her at an event, come by and say hey!
My name is Jordan Montoya…you killed my father. Prepare to die. HA! Not really, but I was born and raised in Woodland, California. Growing up I played and coached volleyball, ran track and TA’d (teacher’s assistant) for some of my favorite teachers. It was also during this time that radio sparked my interest. I’ll never forget listening to “War of the Roses” en route to school, in fact, most of my mornings started with the Wake Up Call and to think that I would be working for this station was once just an eighteen-year-old dream. Upon graduating high school I went straight to Southern California to attend Cal State Northridge where I received my bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in performance and social change and mass media. These courses were my favorite because we were allowed to take our voices out and into the campus community and make an impact, big or small, the process was fun. Radio and television have been a lingering dream, so I am beyond excited to be able to take what I learned in an environment that allows me to reach out to the local community and create impacts with an awesome team. In my free time I enjoy running, hiking…anything active to be honest, and traveling to new places and for sure meeting new people OH! And if I can take my dog Rey with me…even better!
