Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!

Saturdays, 11:00 AM- 12:00 PM
  • Hosted by Peter Sagal

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. Now in its 16th year, the Peabody Award-winning show has an audience of more than 3.8 million listeners weekly on more than 675 Member stations, and surpasses 4 million podcast downloads each month.

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 Scorekeeper Emeritus Carl Kasell record the outgoing message on their home answering machine.
