Chris Caliente has been affectionately known in the 757 since the early 2000's. She kept your airwaves on fire by collaborating with 757's best DJ's, keeping Girl Talk lit, hosting some of Hampton Roads most memorable events, and helping you get through your workday! In 2015, Chris took a break from radio to spend more time with her son, complete her BA in Business, and start a career in finance. She is currently building her empire as a Finance & Credit Consultant. Her passion is education or community in the area of finance. In a recent interview Chris Caliente stated, "Our lack of education in finance through generations has caused too many in our community to not receive the opportunity to remain debt free and make investments in ourselves. My goal is to help build wealth and break generational cycles of debt." She is still on fire and excited to be a part of the Blazin' Hot 91.1 family." Music and media will always be an important part of Chris' life. "I love my community and look forward to keeping it CALIENTE on your airwaves as long as I have a mic."
If you ask J-Rod what his ultimate goal is, he will simply tell you, "To be the best." The Norfolk State University alum began his entertainment career as an R&B singer. After winning at the world famous, Apollo Theater, J-Rod decided to take a different route to success. The Bronx, New York native started a widely popular radio show, "J-Rod in the Evening" in 2009. The show quickly became a favorite amongst college students and females 25+ in the Virginia Beach/Norfolk market. Known for his interactive segments and wittiness, J-Rod brought a different sound that was missing from most radio shows in the area. After two years and many awards and accolades including, "Trailblazer of the Year (Radio)", he decided to take a short break from radio to further build his brand. He entered the "Face of Fox" competition where he placed 1st runner up over thousands of contestants. Also, during this time, J-Rod starred in and voiced various television and print commercials including a national campaign with Western Union. In 2011, J-Rod decided to go back to radio with a new show, "PrimeTime Radio" and the "Voice Of The Streets" and has not looked back since. J-Rod has interviewed celebrities like Rick Ross, Wale, Pusha-T, Magoo, 2 Chainz, Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah, and Faison Love, just to name a few. J-Rod has been featured in national urban blogs including "ThisIs50.com", "sohh.com", and "allhiphop.com". He has also hosted the TV show, "BME Presents" seen in over 16 markets on the East Coast and has just wrapped in the stage play "Mama, I Want To Be Delivered.” J-Rod's quest (to be the best) has only just begun!
