KROQ morning show hosts Kevin Ryder and Gene Baxter, aka Kevin & Bean, were inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame on Tuesday afternoon at a special luncheon taking place at the 2015 NAB Show in Las Vegas. The radio duo were honored for their 25 years of great success on the Los Angeles airwaves.
Ryder told the Los Angeles Times this week that when they found out about the honor in December, they thought of a former employee of theirs. Said Ryder: "For the longest time we were both thinking it was a prank by Jimmy Kimmel. I mean, in what world? The Hall of Fame is for people like Vin Scully, Larry King, and Don Imus, not us." (Kimmel was part of the Kevin & Bean show from 1995-1997 and remains friendly with the hosts.)
