Umm, she used to live in Minnesota.  That's where she and Al met.  She is 
writing a book and I  think the real story is she got tired of being just a 
sidekick whose role was to laugh at Al's jokes.  She had a long history in 
public radio and felt she wasn't doing enough of the things she really 
enjoyed doing.  I expect she'll be back on the radio eventually, perhaps 
back at Public Radio.
