Broadway and Friends | 5am-10am Monday-Friday and Best of Saturdays
Jerry Broadway is a proud native of Soso, MS (pop 308). He grew up on a dirt road, where he spent his childhood working in chicken houses, hauling hay, picking watermelons, and throwing rocks at the power lines that ran over his trailer (This behavior is not recommended, but if you HIT the powerline with a rock, it makes a sound like a laser firing from a spaceship).
Broadway has what Luke Bryan calls “Dirt Road Cred”. He learned to swim in a creek that legend held had no bottom. He cut down his family’s Christmas tree several years from various fields down the road from their home (fields he neither owned nor had permission to be in). He can, in fact, skin a buck AND run a trotline. One of his greatest personal achievements was being told by Country Star Hardy, who literally started his career with a song called “Rednecker”, that the only person Hardy had ever met that was more country than he was, you guessed it, Broadway.
He outkicked his coverage when he convinced Daphne to be his wife. And even though we’re certain she’s thought about putting D-Con in his coffee at least twice, she has stuck by his side through thick and thin for nearly 30 years. They have three children. Hayley, Chandler, and the family rock star, Grayson. Grayson was the subject of Broadway’s first book, “Amazing Grayson”, which chronicles the lives of their family as they accepted the challenge of raising a child with multiple special needs.
When he’s not herding cats as host of The Bud and Broadway Show, he can be found watching serial killer documentaries, playing video games, grilling for friends and family, or planning his next trip to be next to a body of water. He has also been known to pick a tune on one of his guitars. He has won numerous awards for his work on The Bud and Broadway Show. Awards you will be forced to walk by when you enter his home. Yes, you are expected to ooh and ahh, even if you’ve seen them fifty times already. He has written one book, several awful country songs, and numerous well thought out, thought-provoking blogs that went largely unnoticed by all but his closest friends and family.

A television host, news anchor, weatherman, actor, stand-up comedian, radio show host and more all rolled in one, Mitch English is known for his quick wit & unpredictability. Not only is Mitch part of the B & B Team, but he also hosts the nationally syndicated television show Daily Flash, seen all across America every weekday. Out of all the titles Mitch has, “Dad” of 4 kids is his most important.
Mitch studied Broadcast Meteorology at Mississippi State University and for 10 years was the “spark plug” for the national television show The Daily Buzz, serving as both host and weather anchor. When he left that show, he set out on the road visiting TV shows across the country to “Get Techy” by showcasing the latest in tech and gadgetry.

Mitch later ventured behind the camera to become the Executive Producer of Good Morning San Diego at powerhouse station KUSI-TV in San Diego, California before heading to KOKH-TV FOX 25 where he served as Reporter, then Morning News Anchor of FOX 25 Morning News.

Mitch also toured with The Big and Tall Comedy Tour performing stand-up on stages throughout the country. He began his broadcasting career in 1990 and soon after, worked on-air at WDJR in Dothan, Alabama. It was there where he began working with Jerry Broadway… and for that, we’re sorry.
