Meet The Team


Teri Lynne

Z99 Morning Show Host

Teri Lynne was born in the prairies of Canada and traded her wheat fields for palm trees when she first moved to Cayman in 2006. She’s the voice people have been waking up to on Z99 for 4 years.  Teri's musical preferences are almost too vast and too strange to list them all, but she enjoys everything from: dance, house, oldies, hair bands, punk rock, modern rock, classic rock, 80's, and disco to name a few. Teri got her start in radio in 2006 and has been in love with it ever since. Previously a drama teacher and part-time actor Teri is no stranger to public speaking, performing, hosting, and voice-over work. When Teri is not working, she enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and her dog Roxy.  She also loves traveling, acting, watching movies, writing, swimming, and will never pass up the chance for a good soak in a hot tub.

Fun Facts:

  • If she could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve agoutis! Tim and Teri, alongside the Cayman Islands Parrot Sanctuary created the first ever “Cayman Islands Agouti Day” in 2022 and we are hoping it will become an official holiday here!
  • The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is: How you do anything is how you do everything.


Tim Hartman

Z99 Morning Show Host

Tim was born in Ohio and generally nomadic in nature for the past two decades. He’s ventured from Las Vegas to St. Louis to the Middle East, Jordan, Dubai and now the Cayman Islands! He’s half of Z99’s morning show with Tim & Teri, a favorite across the island. Tim’s favorite part of the morning show is that people listen so closely to the show and that people remember specific conversations he and Teri have had on the show long after they’ve forgotten. “I’m grateful people listen so closely but it’s also a reminder of the responsibility of conveying our thoughts in the most accurate way possible.” One of his favorite musicians is John Coltrane because he has the perfect combination of a spiritual and musical style. When Tim is not working, he enjoys lazy Sundays with his cats.

Fun facts:

  • You may not know…. I’m fully synesthete (google it - are you?)
  • Another life…. Oh I was a mammal just not sure which one - probably a dog constantly distracted by shiny objects and squirrels.
  • The best piece of advice…learn something skillful with your hands (keep it clean)
  • If I could invent a holiday, it would involve…animals of course. Agouti Day is already a thing, and I am looking for the next Cayman animal to holidize.
  • If you’re thinking of getting into media, learn how to speak and present yourself first and foremost. Second, learn everything on the technical side of audio AND video. Everything is necessary and media will continue to evolve in many unpredictable directions.
  • Superpower - the ability to communicate with all forms of life. I wanna be talking to my cats (specifically - it’s killing me what they’re plotting but I know it’s not good), dogs, agoutis, comfort llamas, sea turtles, sunflowers, eggplants, flowers, grass, you get the
    point, let’s throw in humans while we’re at it since we seem to have a few languages. Superpower would be quite helpful with all that.
  • Three words that best describe you: Spontaneous, sensitive, uncoordinated
  • I’m very passionate about tackling the most important social issues in any country, particularly work towards poverty elimination and care for those escaping traumatic situations whether it’s large-scale war or domestic issues here in Cayman or anywhere. I have a similar passion for care of animals and here in Cayman particularly as our pet overpopulation problem is ever more severe.
  • If I won the lottery - I’d build a vinyl record outlet in Cayman with 300,000 original vinyl albums. Completely impractical, but hey I won the lottery what do I care. I’d also build a brand-new Cayman Islands Humane Society building.


VJ Marz

Z99 Power Lunch Host

Jamaican born Marsha-lee Palmer, otherwise known as “Marz” is a dynamic force to reckon with once around those turntables and microphone, she loves nothing more than bringing her energy and style across the airwaves with top shelf vibration and vocals, which sends infectious chills to her listeners as a Disc Jockey and Radio Personality. The love for all genres of music on the turntables, has enabled Marz to dominate the market consistently for at least 12 years in the Cayman Islands and overall 17 years in the radio industry. Marz is championed as one of Cayman’s premium radio personalities/DJ over the last decade and affectionately dubbed ‘Cayman’s First Lady’.

Marz developed her passion for media communications in 2002 as an Entertainment & Event Coordinator with the Jimmy Buffet franchise -Margaritaville, Negril/Montego Bay, Jamaica AND Turks and Caicos . She then bolted into her radio career shortly after in 2004 on a popular radio station in Westmorland, Jamaica creating a success story and wave on the show called ‘Rise and Shine' as the leading personality for many years. It was during this time she decided to push the boundaries in a predominantly male industry of a disc Jockey.

Evolving over the years and actively catapulting her career Marz electrifies and personalizes her love for the genres Reggae, Soca, Hip Hop, Dancehall, EDM and Club Top 40.

Rocking the airwaves with her personal tagline that embraces her "taking you to her planet and back" with energetic hosting and entertainment. Her journey and obsession for music has led her to mastering the art of “mixing” with no hesitation in transforming your mind into a musical revival experience, this creates a unique and edgy way of expression with a “synchronized” party vibe.

Over the years Marz has harnessed and triumphed with her professional hosting and mixing skills by interviewing and working with legends within the Caribbean & the International stage such as: Gregory Isaac (Reggae Artist), Terry Linen (Reggae Artist), Taurus Riley (Reggae Artist), Konshens (Dancehall Artist), Sean Paul (Dancehall Artist), Popcaan/ Beenie Man/Mavado/ Tami Chin (Dancehall Artists) to name a few, Alison Hinds (Soca Artist), Avant, Estelle, 2Pistols (R&B/Hip Hop Artists).

Favorite Song and artiste Whitney Houston- I will always love you

Something you may not know about me- Super shy, home body once the music/mic are off.

Best piece of advice I’ve ever gotten -Make Your Life A Masterpiece, You Only Get One Canvas.
