Bob Kevoian’s knack for writing songs, delivering comedy and consistently surprising both Tom and their listeners makes him an exceptional talent. Born in Los Angeles, California, Bob grew up with an interest in theater and the performing arts. Graduating from Long Beach State University, Bob traveled extensively with “The Young Americans” theater group before beginning his radio career. Bob’s entry into radio began in 1979 when he landed his first job at WMBN in Petoskey, Michigan. In 1983 after four years at WMBN and WJML, Bob moved to WFBQ in Indianapolis, Indiana where his talent reached new heights as he and co-host Tom Griswold established “The Bob & Tom Show.”
