Broadway grew up in Marne, Michigan, a small town surrounded by farms. Perhaps it was the smell of cow manure that made him the eccentric character he is today.
Broadway’s introduction to Country music came through the 90’s hit, Boot Scootin' Boogie. He says, "I played the Boot Scootin' Boogie cassette single so many times that mom threw it away and said it was an accident."
He is a huge advocate for the American Cancer Society. His mother passed away from Lung cancer in 2008, and father has battled three different types of cancer.
When not in the studio, Broadway enjoys cartoons, Squidbillies on Adult Swim is his favorite. He also enjoys Stephen King books and spending time with his family consisting of his wife, two kids and dog.
Cory Myers is a Connecticut native, raised in the All-American Valley borough of Naugatuck. She attended Holy Cross High School and went on to college at Eastern CT State University and Central CT where she was bitten by the radio bug. A graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (because college took too long for her!), she started her career as a traffic reporter flying in a plane above Hartford and quickly moved onto more solid ground, literally. Paying her dues in overnights, she quickly moved into mornings as a producer (since she was there when the morning show came in and they needed help anyway).
A music lover, Cory has worked on-air in Top 40, Hard rock, Oldies and Country, where she has made her home for the past 17 years. She’s covered the Grammy Awards, Radio Music Awards, several star studded movie premieres, the CMA’s and ACM’s and even the MTV Movie Awards.
Cory loves to donate her time to various charity organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Connecticut Humane Society, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Gifts of Love and Make-A-Wish Foundation among others, hosting various charity motorcycle rides, auctions and events for them.
She and her husband Jason live in Southington with their three favorite people in the world, their three kids, Austin, 12, Carter, 5 and Gianna, 3, and their dogs Aretha, an American Staffordshire Terrier, they adopted from the CT Humane Society and their new puppy Capone. When she’s not working, you can find her at the Pricechopper or Walmart in town, making her own sauce (she’s 100% Italian and has big hair to prove it), sitting by her pool in the summer time or watching reruns of Star Trek or some other crazy sci-fi show (she is a self-professed nerd at heart and proud of it!)

After the fake sign language interpreter somehow managed to fool the world and it's leaders at the Nelson Mandela memorial, maybe this little munchkin can show him a thing or two? Both her parents are deaf so she signed her entire concert so they could understand the words.
An open letter to Gisele Bundchen from Cory...
I want to live in Gisele’s world. THIS is multitasking?!
I am the mother of two. I work a full time job and a part time job. There are NO nannies around to help. My sister doesn’t work for me so she’s not around to snap photos of me being pampered or doing yoga.
Let’s define “multitasking” for that supermodel mom who might not know what it means. Webster defines it as “the ability to do several things at the same time”. WHAT is she actually doing here? Is sitting doing something? I think it’s actually doing NOTHING. Now breastfeeding your child, that’s doing something. But if we really look at Gisele’s idea of “multitasking”, she’s not actually doing more than one thing. Multitasking involves ACTUALLY doing more than one thing.
Does she drag her kids grocery shopping and have to stop 8 times and yell at them for running around in the store? No. Does she go home, cook dinner, help with homework, do laundry, pack lunches or snacks, feed the dogs and still try to bake Christmas cookies for the whole class? Probably not. Does she get up early every day, make sure all the kids clothes are laid out for her husband to get them dressed for school while she’s out the door WAY before anyone else to work her fulltime job? Doubt it. Does she bring her work computer home and sit down for three hours in the afternoon to finish her work after picking up her youngest child from preschool, giving her lunch and trying to entertain her and still get her work done? Haven’t seen her Instagram that yet.
Does she struggle to stay awake at 3 in the afternoon because she’s already put in a 12 hour day of work and kids and now has to figure out what to make for dinner, get them to actually eat it without a fight, argue with them as to why they need a bath, get them into bed, get them to stay in bed and still manage to get herself into bed on time and only hope that she can get a solid 6 hours of sleep? Again, no.
When my kids were a year old, I had a bouncy chair in the bathroom and could only hope I could get the water to run warm over me and get the smelly parts washed before the baby would fuss or my toddler pulled all the toilet paper off the roll and I would have to get out of the shower.
I once got an OB/GYN exam with both my kids in the room because I didn’t have anyone to take them for me. When my doctor asked me when I could start to exercise regularly, I looked at my phone and said, “This time next year sound good to you? Both my kids will be in school full-time by then and I will have the afternoons to myself.”
So Gisele, before you Instagram your “multitasking” life, live one of an average, middle class mom, not a pampered supermodel one. Hashtag THAT! #bringhomethebaconfryitupinapan
