Meruelo Media has announced Kevin Ryder is joining the 95.5 KLOS team to host a new show, "Kevin & Sluggo," which will air live each weekday from 3pm-7pm. Ryder was co-host of legendary "The Kevin & Bean Show" and a National Association of Broadcasters and Radio Hall of Fame inductee.

"I'm happy KLOS has lowered their standards just enough for me to slip in," said Ryder. "Everyone at the station, starting with Heidi and Frank in the morning, are having fun, and love the music they're playing. I'm happy to be working in the afternoon, with my longtime friend Sluggo, because one of us needs to be able to use the English language sufficiently. Plus, I need my beauty sleep to remain at the top of the modeling game. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with listeners and having fun on the air in L.A. again!"

"We're doubling-down on ‘live and local' with one of the very best in our craft," remarked Otto Padron, Meruelo Media President and CEO. "Bringing Kevin Ryder on-board was a no-brainer, as this is the type of bold and disruptive move that delivers compelling voices and relevant content to our very deserving listeners. We welcome Kevin and his legion of loyal fans to the KLOS Meruelo Media family!"

"Great talent and content are king," said KLOS Program Director, Keith Cunningham. "If we're not providing both, we'll become irrelevant. Kevin is laugh out loud funny, an A-List content creator, hall of famer, this market loves him, and adding him to the team and partnering him with Sluggo completes what I consider to be the most powerful and entertaining on-air lineup in all of Southern California."

The "Kevin & Sluggo" show will debut Thursday, February 18th at 3pm and is described as ‘Maxim Magazine ... meets Rolling Stone ... meets ESPN ... meets Comedy Central,' and will feature a mix of rock music, talk, comedy, listener interaction, and celebrity and artist interviews.
