Peter Sagal is the host of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!
In 1997, Sagal joined the panel of a new news quiz show on NPR, co-produced by WBEZ-Chicago, that made its debut on-air in January of 1998. In May of that year, he moved to Chicago to become the host of the show. Since then, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! has become one of the most popular shows on public radio.
In 2008, Wait Wait was the recipient of a Peabody Award for excellence in broadcasting. A year later, in the fall of 2009, Wait Wait made its New York debut with a show at Carnegie Hall, which sold out in the first 90 minutes after tickets went on sale.
