A vital part of The Ticket’s success on and off the air, Beatrice native and UNL graduate Jake Sorensen currently hosts “Early Break” (weekdays 6-8 am) with Steve Sipple of the Lincoln Journal Star. The two of them create a dynamic, unique, energetic pairing that is a must-listen for your morning commute.
Before Early Break, Jake co-hosted Morning Take, a constant on the show since 2012. The Morning Take crew won a pair of 2015 talk hosting awards, from Midwest Broadcast Journalists Association and the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, for their first segment after the hiring of head coach Mike Riley in December 2014.
Beyond hosting, Jake is a full-time sales executive for The Ticket, using his enthusiastic personality to help bring local businesses the advertising they need for awareness and success. Prior to The Ticket, Jake called Husker TV and web events for the Big Ten Network, while also calling games and hosting shows for KRNU Radio.
An avid golfer, Jake is a Miami Dolphin, Miami Heat and Kansas City Royals fan. He stripped his St. Louis Cardinals fandom once he became closer to the Royals as a member of The Ticket.
