Ralph Garman Exits KROQ’s ‘Kevin and Bean’ Show After 18 Years

“We’ll miss him and truly wish him the best … It’s a tough day,” “Kevin and Bean” co-host Kevin Ryder says

Ralph Garman, a longtime personality on Los Angeles radio station KROQ’s “Kevin and Bean” morning show, has exited the program after 18 years.

“Kevin and Bean” co-host Kevin Ryder announced Garman’s departure Thursday morning, noting, “It’s been a tough day.”

“We’re sad to say our friend @RalphGarman will no longer be w @kevinandbean,” Ryder tweeted. “His talent is unique. His dedication to the show for 18 yrs – amazing. More importantly he’s a really good person.

“We’ll miss him and truly wish him the best … It’s a tough day :(,” Ryder added.

TheWrap has reached out to CBS Radio for comment on Garman’s departure.

Garman, who has also provided extensive voice work for the Fox animated series “Family Guy,” was known for his impressions on “Kevin and Bean,” notably his impersonation of action star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Garman has not yet directly addressed his departure on his Twitter account. However, he did respond to a tweet from actress Milana Vayntrub, who wrote, “We’ll miss you @RalphGarman. Thanks for making us laugh since the invention of radio.”

“Easy, Squirrel Girl … I’m not THAT old …,” Garman replied, referring to the actress’ character in the television series “New Warriors.”

“Kevin and Bean” experienced another shakeup in 2015, with the firing of longtime traffic reporter Lisa May.May has since landed at Los Angeles radio station KLOS.
