Hey Kentucky! Do you think that you have what it takes to be the next “Hey Kentucky!” Cast Member? Well now is your chance to put your money where your mouth is, and come compete to join the Hey Kentucky! team as our newest co-host.

In the coming weeks, we will begin the Hey Kentucky Casting Call! This will be a televised competition, where contestants will try-out in front of our panel of judged, including Hayley Harmon, Lee Cruse and, of course, Matt Jones.

Contestants selected by our panel of judges will then continue to compete for the chance to become the newest Hey Kentucky! Co-host through a series of “reality show” style challenges to narrow down our contestants to find the best person for the job.

If you’re interested, here’s what you need to do:

Come to the Fayette Mall on June 17th. Registration begins at 10:00 A.M. Once registered, you will be interviewed by one of our producers, and some of you will be selected to come back later that evening to try-out in front of our panel of judges.


MUST BE 18 years or older to try-out for the competition.

MUST BE a Kentucky Resident.

MUST BRING a valid driver’s license with you.


  1. Matt Jones you disgust me! Your show tonight,if you live in Louisville by chance,take your rump to the Bluegrass! I can’t wait to leave this area so I don’t flip through the channel and see your nasty show! Liberal rude remarks!

  2. Hey Matt there is a outstanding Kentucky boy Logan Woodside of Frankfort Ky. He will be playing for the Mac Championship next Sat at 12 in Detroit Michigan . He is a Heisman contender he has broken all kinds of records of Bruce Gradkowski look at his records for Toledo . Would love for you to give him some time on the show to let Kentucky know what we have in Toledo. He is also my nephew and we are so proud of him here in Lawrenceburg Ky.

  3. Hello Matt was wandering?? will you be adding to your show cast members again in 2018?? was just curious?? .i have always been a good front man may give it a shot if you are going to do a cast call again. thanks jeff T

  4. Hey Matt,
    I enjoy your radio and tv show. A suggestion is to invite Larry Vaught (Vaught’s Views) as a guest to discuss UK sports. He is one of the most knowledgeable sports writer in KY and always has a insightful story to tell. He shares information about athletes that other reporters fail to research. Larry and you would have a really entertaining show.

  5. At times, the show is completely one sided. Take the school teachers retirement system and how the Republicans are the one’s that are destroying their retirement and the fact that the teachers are protesting at the capital. I do understand the teachers for their own retirement however, that’s the limit of it. The Republicans being responsible for it is insane. Out of the last 30 years, the Democrats has been governor 24 of those years. Obviously during these 24 years, the current problem has been created. The government input to the teachers and state workers wasn’t depleted all of a sudden but on a prolonged period of time and it’s time to figure out something to do. Hopefully, the current, especially the teachers, can keep the promise of their retirement and the future teachers can be in whatever new system is decided. The system of double dipping for state workers should stop. I’m not familiar with, but if the state worker is going back to what they were being paid instead of the starting pay for their position, that’s a huge part of the problem.
