INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 6, 2015)– A local and national radio legend is stepping away from the mic. Bob Kevoian of “The Bob and Tom Show” made the announcement Thursday night when the pair was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.

For 32 years, listeners at more than 130 stations nationwide have started their days with Bob and Tom. At the end of this year, they’ll have to adjust to a show without Kevoian.

The good news is, although Bob is retiring he says the show is not ending. Together, Bob and Tom have won five Marconi Awards and created more than 50 comedy albums, along with their daily radio show based right here in Indianapolis.

Kevoian met Tom Griswold in a bar in Michigan and they’ve been a dynamic duo ever since.

“He’s the greatest partner I’ve ever had,” Kevoian said. “If you take all the marriages in our studio, we’ve been together longer than all of those people put together. It’s been a great partnership, great friendship.”

Kevoian says he plans to travel Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway with his other love, his wife, in their Airstream after his last show.
