Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

NEPR: Saturdays, 11 a.m. – noon | NEPR NEWS NETWORK: Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
  • Hosted by Peter Sagal, Carl Kasell

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