Bob Kevoian of The Bob and Tom Show will retire at the end of 2016

Bob Kevoian and his on-air partner Tom Griswold first met in 1982 at WJML in Petoskey, Michigan. A year later, they moved to WFBQ (94.7fm, Indianapolis). They’ve done mornings ever since, becoming syndicated in 1995.

“Tonight at Bob and Tom’s induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame, Bob Kevoian announced that he will retire at the end of 2016.

“When I was a teenager, I was a real smart ass,” Bob Kevoian said in his remarks to the National Radio Hall of Fame. “I didn’t get along with my Dad. And he said “if you continue this behavior, you’ll amount to nothing. But you will make it to the big mouth hall of fame.” I made it, Dad. I always thought you had to die or be retired for five years to be considered for any hall of fame. Thank god I’m not dead, but I am going to retire at the end of this year and walk away from the mic. Thank you for this great honor.”

“It was a huge thrill to be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame with my partner Bob,” said Tom Griswold. “He will always be a part of the BOB & TOM Show, and his presence will continue to be felt as we broadcast the show for many years to come”.
