Best AFN Personality
Name: Jonathan (Jay) “D Double-J” Hernandez
Rank: Staff Sergeant
Q: What's the deal with the nickname?
A: It started as DJ "Jay." Not very clever I know, but I felt a nickname should be something given to you by friends. One day a co-worker came into the studio and said "D-Double-Jay" sounds smooth compared to "DJ-J." It also came at a good time because some people started saying da-jay-jay in an ... ummm... Inappropriate manner ... from that moment on it's been "D-Double-J."
Q: What's the best part of your job?
A: I really get to be myself on-air. Poking fun of my wife on-air is fun too, until I get home anyway. Thankfully I have a comfortable couch.
Q: What's the key to being a good DJ?
A: Don't let it go to your head and don't try and be someone else. Just have fun with it.
Q: Do you have a message for your fans?
A: Thank you for listening! It's been one of the best experiences of my life, sometimes at the expense of embarrassing my wife. Thank goodness she's a good sport.
