KROQ’s Bean Recovering After Kidney Donation

KROQ’s Gene “Bean” Baxter is recovering at Cedars-Sinai hospital after successfully donating his kidney to co-worker Scott Mason.

Baxter made the announcement earlier this month that he had decided to help his friend and KROQ’s director of engineering after learning of his health woes during a recent trip to his home in Seattle.

Bean is expected to make a full recovery and return to the airwaves on Nov. 26.
