Clare Duffy

When she’s not trying to assist her two daughters in selling Girl Scout cookies, Clare is busy being a great wife to her #blessed husband, who somehow got the name Poor Poor Nick.

Williamsburg isn’t only known for their outlet mall, but also as the birth place of Clare! She participated in FFA growing up, as well as Speech & Drama. Clare attended Mt. Mercy University, way back in the olden times when it was just a college.

That led to meeting her sweet husband, Poor Poor Nick, and she’s lived in Cedar Rapids ever since. From her Z102.9 intern days to being the Morning Show producer of Schulte & Swann, Clare eventually worked her way to becoming the co-host of The Morning Scramble.

Eric Hanson

The logical local. DINK and dog owner. Boy this guy doesn’t know when to quit. He volunteers for arts and human services groups throughout the region. Travel back in time and you’ll discover he was part of team that launched Z102.9.

Named Radio Ink’s “Program Director of the Year” twice. He’ll always root for his beloved Washington Demons, but Iowa holds a special place in his heart. Eric loves his Hawkeyes and loves that he met his uber hip wife of 20+ years, Shannon, in the Hawkeye Marching Band. Enjoys life’s experiences, travel and theater. Throw him a line and ask him to improv.

Lady J

Purveyor of pop culture knowledge. Collector (not hoarder) of POP! Vinyl figures. Lady J is a music/TV/movie junkie and your midday host on Z102.9.

Along with playing Today’s Hit Music from 10am -2pm, she also delivers your throwback fix with the 90’s Song of the Day every weekday at noon.


Iced coffee connoisseur. Knows a little too much about the Kardashians and will definitely ask to pet your dog.

Taylor was born in Cedar Rapids, but grew up in small town Anamosa. After graduating from Anamosa High School, she headed to Iowa City to attend the University of Iowa to study journalism. Taylor spent most of her free time in Kinnick Stadium or Carver Hawkeye Arena as a four year member of the Iowa Dance Team cheering on Hawkeye athletics.  As she was about to graduate in 2019, she joined the Street Team and eventually ended up on-air on weekends.

Now you can catch her weekday afternoons 2-6PM and on weekends!


If she’s not annoying you with random Post Malone facts, be thankful. Destiny was born in Cedar Rapids, but grew up in small town Vinton. She’s lived in Iowa her whole life except for 6 months that she spent in Missouri.

Destiny started her radio career back in 2016 as an intern. She was determined to work at Z102.9 someday, and started out as a member of the Street Team. Eventually, she worked her way to weekends on air.

If you catch her in the daylight, it’s usually to coach cheerleading at Coe College or to mother her two puppies, Milo & Otis.

Chris Jackson

Chris is just a music nerd, dog loving, Lana Del Ray listening, taco eating loud mouth.

Chris is the Operations Manager for Z102.9 as well as an ‘occasional’ on-air host. If you hear a loud idiot on your radio, it’s probably Chris Jackson.


Overanalyzer who has no problem falling asleep after watching copious amounts of crime T.V. Oh, and also she’s the Promotions Director for Z102.9!

Mitchell James

Who is Mitchell James? EVERYONE asks that question. Seriously. Everyone. He is a weekend voice you hear on Z and when he is not working his main hustle, he also tries to keep the Z website lookin’ good. He’s pretty fly for a web guy.


Maurisa joined our street team around the summer of 2018. She’s a recent graduate of Mt.Mercy with her bachelors in criminal justice. Maurisa is a spark and enjoys interacting with the fans of Z102.9 and our sister stations.

When she’s not having fun at the station Maurisa loves to travel, sleep and hang out with her friends and family.


Junior Street Teamer Rebecca is an 11th grader in CR. Dog lover and connoisseur bland food.
