About the show

Ed and Kim Ryan host Beach Talk Radio live every Saturday morning at 9:00 from Fort Myers Beach. Our goal is to inform residents about the latest beach news and entertain them with our sarcastic family humor.

What fans say about the podcast


This is my favorite way to keep up with what happening on FMB, and Kim & Ed are hilarious!!!

Nicci Frazier


This is what community is all about. Informing folks of what’s new, what’s important and what impacts us in our everyday lives. I love that it is held at Pete’s where friends and family can gather together on Saturdays.

About the Hosts

Kim Ryan

Kim Ryan

Co-CEO and Host

The wife keeps the show on the straight-and-narrow. When Ed veers off course she reels him back in and keeps him from losing all of the shows listeners. Kim was reluctantly pulled into this weekend event but seems to be enjoying it on occasion.

Ed Ryan

Ed Ryan

Co-CEO and Host

It was Ed's idea to launch the show on August 4, 2018. An idea and a tape recorder has grown into thousands of listeners, a weekly newsletter and requests to appear and host at other community events. You never know. During the day Ed is the editor of Radio Ink Magazine and The Podcast Business Journal.
