NPR's Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me! takes a fast-paced, irreverent look at the news of the world—and the weird. The show offers a modern and sometimes raucous twist on the old-time radio quiz show, mining NPR news stories for quiz questions. The host is Peter Sagal, who is an award-winning playwright and father of three in his spare time. America's favorite newscaster, NPR's Carl Kasell, is the show's official judge and scorekeeper. A rotating trio of witty panelists completes the Wait Wait team. They include author and humorist Roy Blount Jr., Boston Globe writer Charlie Pierce, Washington Post columnist Roxanne Roberts, writer/performer Adam Felber, BBC contributor Sue Ellicott, author P.J.
For more than two decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers) have been America's funniest auto mechanics on Car Talk. By making millions of weekly listeners laugh, they have become the defining voices of public radio weekends. Their mixture of honesty, authenticity, knowledge, and humor has won them numerous awards (including a Peabody), accolades from every major national publication, and the loyalty of millions of public radio listeners, who continue to reward their stations with good will, listener hours, and fundraising dollars.
