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.

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.



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!

In The Mix with Alex Angelo


Born in Florida, and growing up in Ohio, primarily Cleveland and Cincinnati, Angelo recalls that his earliest musical motives were driven by his love for dance and DJing.  At the age of 7, Alex was dancing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.  At the age of 10, he was DJing in the arena during games.  At the age of 12, he had a weekly radio mix show on Radio Disney. Alex’s mom is a public school music teacher, and Alex decided early on that he wanted to be the artist ON the records, not just playing and dancing to the music.   Through his teens, Alex toured with Austin Mahone, Jake Miller, Shawn Mendes, Fifth Harmony and self-released several songs that have totalled millions of listens on Youtube, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.  Now 20, living in Nashville, TN,  Alex has grown as a producer/songwriter learning from the likes of  Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Antonio Dixon.

He continues to songwright and produce music for himself and other artists.  His goal for this new radio show is to meld his skills as a DJ and a Producer to create some buzzworthy, exciting mixes and sounds that are exclusively In The Mix with Alex Angelo.



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.
