The station welcomes "Liz Luda and Mike Vezzola" as morning co-hosts, weekday mornings from 5-9am. The Hot AC outlet also adds Jamie Tanchyk as Assistant Program Director and afternoon host from 2-7pm.

"Building a strong on-air team is why Entercom Portland is the platinum standard for our listeners and advertisers," said Entercom Portland Senior VP/Market Manager Kim Martinez. "Liz and Mike's fun and energetic chemistry coupled with Jamie's exuberant on-air style and programming prowess cements 105.1 The Buzz as the go-to for young, active listeners in Portland."

"I am so excited to be joining the Entercom family, especially in Portland," added Luda. "I love Scott [Roddy, Operations Manager and Program Director, 105.1 The Buzz and 99.5 The Wolf] and Kim's vision and know that we can deliver great content that audiences can relate to. I am beyond ecstatic for this opportunity."

Prior to joining Entercom, Luda served as a morning co-host and Promotions Director for Flinn Broadcasting/Memphis. She also previously held an Account Executive role for Clear Channel/Charlotte, NC.

"I've been fortunate to work with some incredible people throughout my career in several New England markets, and am beyond excited to head out west and begin the next chapter with the extremely talented Liz," said Vezzola. "Scott Roddy and Kim Martinez are the real deal and have a great vision for the future in Portland, I look forward to getting out there, getting to work and being a part of that."

Vezzola joins 105.1 The Buzz after previously serving as an air personality for sister stations WODS-FM (103.3 AMP Radio)/Boston and WTIC-FM (96.5 TIC FM) and WZMX-FM (Hot 93.7)/Hartford.
