'Wait...Wait...Don't Tell Me!' to be broadcast live at local cinemas
Find out if Peter Sagal has a face for radio when Quality 16 and Rave Cinemas broadcast "Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me!"
For this stage adaptation of the weekly radio show, Sagal and Carl Kasell will quiz "Wait Wait" panelists Paula Poundstone, Mo Rocca and Tom Bodett, special guests and listener contestants through a comic review of the week’s news.
“We’ve always wanted to do our show all over the country, simultaneously, and finally turned to this idea of a nationwide simulcast when our experiments in cloning didn’t come out as well as we hoped “That said, ‘Little Carl’ has shown a real propensity for handling simple tasks and grunting the hour’s news," says host Peter Sagal in the press release.
Both WEMU (89.1 FM) and Michigan Radio (WUOM 91.7 in Ann Arbor) carry the program at 11 a.m. on Saturdays. WEMU staff will be at the May 2 event at Rave with station and "Wait...Wait..." giveaway items.
