Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me!

For a wacky and whip-smart approach to the week's news and newsmakers, listen no further than Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me!, the oddly informative news quiz from NPR.

Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me hero Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me! airs weekends on NPR 89.1.

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 lightening speed, sniffing out fake news items, and deciphering limericks. Listeners vie for a chance to win the most coveted prize in radio: having Scorekeeper Emeritus Carl Kasell record the outgoing message for their voicemail.

Airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. and Sundays at 11 a.m. on NPR 89.1.
