Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! LIVE

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! airs on WBEZ Saturdays at 10am and 9pm.

Produced by NPR and WBEZ, the news quiz show is a fast-paced and irreverent review of the past week's news. Host Peter Sagal tests the knowledge and wit of celebrity panelists, including Mo Rocca, Paula Poundstone, Charlie Pierce, and many others. Taped each week in Chicago at the Chase Bank Auditorium, Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me! is also Chicago's favorite Thursday night activity.

Join our live studio audience for a downtown treat that is second to none!
