NPR'S MAGLIOZZI BROTHERS TO BE INDUCTED TO THE RADIO HALL OF FAME


This week, Chicago's Museum of Broadcast Communications announced that NPR®'s Tom and Ray Magliozzi, hosts of Car Talk®, are among this year's inductees to the Radio Hall of Fame. The Maglozzis, better known as "Click and Clack," dispense expert car advice and irreverent wit to almost three million listeners each week on more than 460 NPR stations nationwide.

Reached in Boston, Tom and Ray said, "That's great! Customers at our garage are going to be really impressed now that they're being ripped-off by Hall of Famers."

Car Talk, celebrating ten years of bad car advice on NPR, is produced by Dewey, Cheetham, and Howe and WBUR in Boston. Doug Berman is the series producer. The program received the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award in 1992.

NPR's Susan Stamberg and All Things Considered® are past inductees to the Radio Hall of Fame.

National Public Radio®, a membership organization of 600 public radio stations nationwide, is radio's leading provider of high-quality news, information, and cultural programming worldwide. In addition to Car Talk, NPR produces and distributes the award-winning programs All Things Considered®, Morning Edition®, Talk of the Nation®, Weekend Edition® and NPR's Performance Today®.
