Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! is NPR's "oddly informative" weekly hour-long news quiz program. Over 6 million listeners on over 600 stations nationwide turn in to hear host PETER SAGAL lead a group of panelists and listeners through a series of games designed to test their knowledge of the week's news—and showcase their wit.
