Radio Disney Broadcasts from Rockford

Some local kids got a chance to sing and dance with one of their favorite Disney stars.

Radio Disney AM 1300 hosted a live show from the Riverfront Museum Park this afternoon.

Along with singing and dancing, kids, tweens, and families were able to meet the star of the Disney Channel show "Kickin' It", Leo Howard.

Howard said meeting his fans is the best part of the job.

"Part of like my favorite thing about the show is like you shoot the show on a sound stage," said Howard, "and you're kind of secluded in a building. And you get these numbers, and you know people are watching. But you don't really notice until you go out to a place like this and everyone loves the show, and they're really excited about it. It makes me love what I do even more."

The event was put on by the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and Enjoy Illinois.
