Earlier today, Cathy Wurzer, host of MPR's "Morning Edition," announced on Facebook that she and her husband of 20 years, longtime WCCO reporter Eric Eskola, are ending their marriage.

That's never easy, but adding to the difficulty in this case is the fact that Wurzer and Eskola co-host Twin Cities Public Television's "Almanac" program.

But in her announcement, Wurzer said the dissolution of their marriage won't mean the dissolution of "Almanac":

Today's announcement capped off a two-week stretch on Wurzer's Facebook page that began with an announcement her dad is receiving chemotherapy in Duluth, and continued with these Zen-like posts:

Wurzer didn't immediately respond to an email seeking further comment.

How about we all butt the fuck out of their personal lives?

An Odd Couple, but wish the best to both of them. Enjoy The Wurz' in the Morning, and watch an odd Almanac every once in a blue moon.

She finally came to the realization she doesn't like dudes who wear red scarves indoors.

Still find them both amazing! (is it totally weird I didn't know they were married?)

I'm wishing the best for the show's success, but this is a very difficult situation for them both.

Sweetie, "butthurt" happened.  It happened so long ago, it's already gone.

I've watched the show many times and had no idea they were married either.
