“My whole radio career I have continued to hear how amazing the team at Alpha is. To say I’m excited to join such a legendary team is an understatement! Oregon is my home state and where it all started for me so I can’t wait to get back, get in the studio with my new team and start rockin’ the airwaves!” – New co-host Jenn Hays
“Jenn is a star, ready to shine brightly in the Rose City. We’re thrilled to welcome her back home to tackle Bull Mornings with Tony & Jake. Let the fun begin!” – 98.7 The Bull’s PD MoJoe Roberts
“Following an exhaustive nationwide search it was clear that Jennifer Hays is uniquely qualified to join The Bull’s Morning Show. She is very talented, a native of Portland, a huge country music fan and growing up KUPL was her favorite country station. She will bring her talent, wit, enthusiasm for Portland and country music home. The next chapter for The Bull’s Morning Show is about to be written. We look forward to a fun and compelling local show as Jenn joins her co-hosts Tony Russell and Jake Byron.” – Alpha Portland SVP/Market Manager Lisa Decker
