Bob Kevoian of the nationally-syndicated BOB & TOM show says he will retire at the end of the year. He made the announcement Thursday during his induction with partner Tom Griswold into the National Radio Hall of Fame.
The BOB & TOM show hit the airwaves in Indianapolis in 1983 and has been in national syndication since 1995. It now airs on more than 100 stations throughout the United States.
During his induction speech, Kevoian remarked, "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."
During his remarks, Griswold said it was a "huge thrill" to be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame, and said Kevoian’s "presence will continue to be felt as we broadcast the show for many years to come."
