HIT SQUAD

Meet the team!

Emily

Hey guys! I’m Emily Thompson. I was born and raised here in Sacramento. At 20 I packed up and moved to Alabama to finish my Bachelors degree in Multimedia Journalism and a minor in Promotions at Troy University. Growing up I always listened to the Wake Up Call on the way to school with my mom and I have always wanted to work here. And now I’m so excited to say that I am! Music is my life, I love finding new songs and playing them on repeat till I hate it. In my free time you can catch me with my family or bar hopping for the best tequila in town with my friends. My passion is traveling and getting to know other people and their cultures. I’m so grateful to be apart of the Hit Squad! Make sure to stop by our events and say hi to me!

Clarissa

Hey guys! I’m Clarissa Pacheco. I’m a senior at Sacramento State studying Communications and Journalism. I’ve wanted to work with 106.5 since I was a freshman in college. I felt like I needed more experience before applying, so after I earned three associates, I became an intern! I loved the experience and now I’m super excited to join the Hit Squad! In my spare time, you can catch me coaching and playing volleyball, going on jogs, and listening to all kinds of music. I’m so thankful to be a part of this team, so when I’m out at an event, make sure you stop by and say hi!   

Danny

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!
