'Bean' Announces Retirement From 'The Kevin & Bean Show' After 30 Years

 Lucky for us, we're stuck with Bean for another 10 months.

This morning, Gene "Bean" Baxter announced he is leaving The Kevin & Bean Show after 30 years on the air. Bean has hosted the show with Kevin Ryder since it launched on January 2, 1990. Lucky for us, we're stuck with Bean for another 10 months.

He tweeted, "Just announced on the @KevinAndBean Show, after 30 years I am leaving the show at the end of the year to move back home to England, the ninth largest island in the world. Much more to come on this."

Listen to the audio from his announcement below: 

Kevin Ryder saluted his co-host by saying, "Just gotta say, Bean's been thinking about this for a LONG time. And this will make him happy. And that makes me happy :)."
