Goodbye 'Car Talk,' Hello 'Everywhere' Radio?

The famous "Car Talk" brothers are shutting down their beloved public radio show, but this does not mark the end of the radio era, say executives.
Furthermore, says Christopher, NPR program developers don't create shows by targeting a specific group of people. "We don't set out to do anything just for the younger people or just for baby boomers," she says. Instead, producers create the best content they can and try to expose as many people to it as possible, letting their listeners choose them, rather than the other way around.
The Web is also coming to the rescue of loyal Car Talk fans. Although Click and Clack's followers may have to settle for reruns come October, they will still be able to access fresh jokes online: The Magliozzi brothers plan to continue writing a blog for their site, CarTalk.com.
