Tom and Ray Magliozzi have hosted ‘Car Talk’ on NPR for 25 years, solving listeners’ car woes and cracking each other up on a weekly basis. Today, they announced they’ll be retiring – at least from the live show.

In an NPR release, Ray Magliozzi said, "We’ve managed to avoid getting thrown off NPR for 25 years, given out tens of thousands of wrong answers, generated lawsuit threats from innumerable car companies, and had a hell of a lot of fun talking to you guys." KPCC and other stations will continue to run repeats of the program for the coming months.
