Cathy Wurzer and Eric Eskola have decided to get a divorce

Wurzer confirmed the separation by e-mail Tuesday after posting a short notice on Facebook. The couple, who have been married for 20 years, will continue to co-host "Almanac," TPT's long-running news program.

Eskola was a high-profile reporter for WCCO radio before leaving in 2010. Wurzer continues to work mornings at MPR.

In her e-mail, Wurzer said "all is well between Eric and me. We have the full support of TPT."

Wurzer and Eskola started co-hosting the Friday night show in 1994, the same year they got married.
