Wake up with Stacey K and Jonah on HOT 101.7!

Get your day started with today’s hottest music and Stacey K and Jonah on HOT 101.7. Stacey K and Jonah have been together on Hot 101 since 2012.

santarosa hotmoringshowStacey is a Santa Rosa native. She loves to hike our beautiful trails, venture out to the coast for some beach vibes and tide pool exploration and is always secretly hoping to find something really crazy that washed up on shore (so far, no luck). But that doesn’t dampen Stacey’s sunny personality. She’s always ready to look on the bright side, find the silver lining, and tell you a hilarious joke (there’s some disagreement between Stacey and others about the meaning of the word “hilarious”).

Jonah’s demeanor could also be described as sunny, but with a chance of clouds. He might be the first non-morning person to love doing morning radio! Jonah is a New York transplant who loves to eat, travel, cook, work out, and eat some more! On weekends you’ll find him outdoors - from canoeing the Russian River to helping build trails on Taylor mountain, he loves it all (unless it’s raining, then bring on the pizza and Netflix!) 

Start your day with Stacey K and Jonah weekday mornings 6 AM  to 10 AM only on HOT 101.7.
