Chris Carson

Longtime music fan, I didn't catch the radio bug till college up at Winona State University in Minnesota. After that, well as they say, the rest is history. Once radio gets in your system, there's nothing else you can think of doing. And I'm glad that road has landed me here in Cedar Rapids. I'm not a born Cedar Rapidian, but am a Chicago burbs implant. First radio gig was doing mornings on Soft Rock KREZ in Cape Girardeau, MO, so being back on the format is a welcome home. Since that start though, I've become a father of 2 (9 yr old daughter Mikayla and 5yr old son Nathan), and husband to an amazing wife, Lauren, for 12 years (my HS sweetheart). We also have a cat, although we're dog people at heart. Besides here and Cape Girardeau, I've also in small town Illinois, and have been on almost all formats, including Country, Classic Rock, "Oldies", and Pop stations, but like I said before, being on KDAT is like a return to my roots. I love being a part of closing out your workday and getting you home to relax and unwind.

Meet Three People Who Are On The List To Make a One Way Trip To Mars

If someone gave you the opportunity to live on Mars, would you take it? Think about it. You'd be one of the first humans living on the planet, ever. A whole planet to yourself, and a small group of others. Of course it'd come with a price as you never would be able to come back to Earth, and you'd never be able to contact your loved ones back here ever again. Now what do you think? More than 200,000 people said "Sign Me Up," and 3 of the over 600 finalists have been named.

Cedar Rapids School Bus Involved In Bad Accident

It's the words you never want to hear come across the news or a police scanner: "Major accident involving school bus".  It's something we take real caution in announcing over the air for concerns of deep panic. But that was just the case Tuesday afternoon, as we closed out the work day.

It’s All About The “Moment” At The Grammys

It's what they call "Music's Biggest Night".  The Grammys!  It's one of the only Award shows where they can go almost an hour without handing out an award, and that's okay, because in that time, there were so many "moments".  And while last night's show is being dissected, lets take a "moment" to give credit for the true reason to have shows like this.
