Hi I’m Danny! I’m from Woodland, California. I have listened to 106.5 for as long as I can remember. Listening to new music and discovering new artists is one of my favorite hobbies. I can always be found with earphones in or blasting my music in my car. I have two associates degrees. One in Social and Behavioral Sciences and one in Communications. I plan on going to Sacramento State to get a bachelors in Communications and Public Relations. I have always wanted to work in the music industry so I’m glad I have this opportunity to jump start my career in radio! Can’t wait to meet some of you listeners! 


Hey Guys! My name is Jeri! I'm a newbie to Sacramento. I'm originally from Wine Country, Santa Rosa CA! Sonoma County Strong <3 Is it bad that I'm from wine country but I'm not a huge fan of wine...? Maybe?  I graduated from Santa Rosa JC with an Associates Degree in Digital Media in Audio and while living in Santa Rosa, I worked for Sonoma Media Group before moving to Sac. 106.5 The End was the first radio station I found once I moved here and is the only station I have programmed!  Fun Fact: I like to dj! but only in my room...I make mixes every now and then and post them online! Being new to Sacramento, I'm trying to find good places to eat and cool places to visit. So if you see me at events, come say hi, I'm nice I promise, and If you have any recommendations of restaurant to try, Id loooove to hear them! Cheers! 


My name's Makinna Clevenger! I was born and raised in El Dorado Hills, CA. I had a pretty typical childhood, with the exception of growing up as a race car driver. Yep, you read that right! I'm proudly part of the third generation of Team Clevenger Drag Racing. I attended my first race when I was just two weeks old, and finally made my first pass down the track when I was 10. By the time I turned 16 I was rocketing down the drag strip at over 200mph. I also grew up participating in competitive Cheerleading and enjoyed four years of playing for the Mother Load Rugby club. After high school, I studied Communications at Cal State Fullerton and fulfilled a life-long dream of working at the Happiest Place on Earth! While working at Disneyland I was able to hang out with Mike and Sulley in Monstropolis, work as a Bell Hop at the famous Hollywood Tower Hotel, join Lightning McQueen's pit crew in Cars Land, and help break out the infamous Guardians of The Galaxy! While I definitely had the time of my life in Orange County, Sacramento has always been my home. I'm so excited to share my passion and excitement for music with this great city. So if you ever see me at an event, don't be afraid to say hello!


Hey Guys! My name is Iran Martinez Jr., but y’all can call me J.R. I was born and raised in a small border town called Calexico, where I spent my days crossing back-and-forth from Mexico which was quite the experience. I recently moved up to Sacramento two years ago to attend the University of California, Davis, where I’m pursuing a double-major in Cinema & Digital Media and Communication. I am very passionate for all music and my hobbies include listening to the different genres, photography, watching movies or television shows, and painting Sacramento. I want to know and be part of the Sacramento community and family, and I’m hoping to achieve this by being part of the 106.5 Hit Squad! Come see us out and about, and recommend me a good series!


Lennon was born in Cleveland, Ohio but has lived in Sacramento for the past 10 years. 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!


Hey Guys! My name is Rebekah, I was born in San Diego, CA but have been raised in the Sacramento area since I was 3. Ever since I was little, I have been obsessed with music. Trust me, I have the home movies of me singing Leann Rimes at 2 years old to prove it. You'll always find me either listening to, singing, or making music. I have been playing guitar since I was 8 and piano when I was 12. One of my favorite memories with The End was when I was 7 and Hilary Duff (the queen) was doing a meet and greet at Six Flags! My aunt got us tickets, and I got to see Hilary ride in on a boat, with style, at the water amphitheater.  That's when I knew entertainment was my dream.
