Amid COVID-19 Crisis, KROQ Fires AM Hosts


LOS ANGELES — From January 1990 until Nov. 7, 2019, Kevin & Bean and their antics served two generations of listeners to pioneering Alternative radio station KROQ-FM 106.7. 

At the time, Gene “Bean” Baxter exited, opting to return to his native Great Britain, where today he is a PodcastRadio host based in London. That left long-time co-host Kevin Ryder to form a new morning show, branded Kevin in the Morning with Allie and Jensen.

As of Tuesday, Ryder, who with Baxter are 2019 Radio Hall of Fame inductees, is out at KROQ, as are his co-hosts.
