Indianapolis, IN, October 3, 2008 – Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels Thursday recognized Bob & Tom show hosts Bob Kevoian and Tom Griswold with their second Sagamore of the Wabash award. The Bob & Tom show is celebrating 25 years on the air at Q95 in Indianapolis and Governor Daniels said “I thought a grateful state ought to take notice”.
While presenting the award, the Governor went on to say “Along with 25 years of fun, you (Bob & Tom) have done a ton of great deeds and helped a lot of people in need.
Some of these would include the recent Miracle Ride to benefit Riley Hospital for Children, Peyton Manning’s Peyback foundation and the Q95 / Bob & Tom Blood Drive.

About the Sagamore of the Wabash award
The award is highest honor, which the Governor of Indiana bestows. It is a personal tribute usually given to those who have rendered a distinguished service to the state or to the governor. Among these who have received Sagamores have been astronauts, presidents, ambassadors, artists, musicians, politicians, and ordinary citizens who have contributed greatly to our Hoosier heritage. It should be noted that the Sagamores have been conferred upon both men and women. There is no record of the total number which have been presented, as each governor has kept his own roll; just as each has reserved the right to personally select the recipients.
