INDIANAPOLIS — Radio personality Tom Griswold, who hosts the nationally syndicated "Bob & Tom Show," is back behind the microphone at the show's studio in Indianapolis after recovering from heart surgery, the show announced Tuesday.

Originally planned as a repair procedure, Griswold's doctors determined that a valve replacement would provide a better long-term outcome for the Indianapolis-based radio personality.

Griswold was off the air for several weeks as he recovered at an Indianapolis hospital and then at home.
