Wait Wait....Don't Tell Me!
Saturdays at 10 a.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
- Hosted by Peter Sagal, Carl Kasell
During each fast-paced, irreverent show, host Peter Sagal leads what might be characterized as the news Olympics. Callers, panelists and guests compete by answering questions about the week's events, identifying impersonations, filling in the blanks at lightning speed, sniffing out fake news items, and deciphering limericks. Listeners vie for a chance to win the most coveted prize in radio: having official judge and scorekeeper Carl Kasell record the outgoing message on their home answering machine.
Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me! is co-produced by NPR and Chicago Public Radio.
