Who is replacing Bean on KROQ? Kevin Ryder, who worked for KROQ until he was let go last March, has been hired by radio station KLOS. Kevin Ryder, best known as the former cohost of the long-running “Kevin & Bean” morning show, has found a new gig at a rival Southern California radio station after departing KROQ last spring.
Why did Bean quit KROQ? In spring 2018, Baxter took several weeks off, citing medical reasons. When he returned to the air, he explained that he’d taken the leave to seek help for his mental health. He also urged listeners to seek help and take time to recover if they ever experience something similar.
