Now in its 20th season, Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me! is National Public Radio’s Peabody Award-winning quiz show.  Host Peter Sagal leads a rotating panel of comedians, humorists and journalists, listener contestants and celebrity guests through a comic review of the week’s news.  Contestants vie for the most coveted prize in all of public radio: a custom-recorded greeting by scorekeeper emeritus Carl Kasell for their voicemail.  The show has a weekly audience of 3.8 million listeners on more than 660 NPR member stations nationwide, and surpassed 4 million podcast downloads monthly.  You can hear Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me! Saturdays at 2 p.m. and Sundays at 10 a.m. on 88.5 KNKX.
