Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me Visits Rochester

Tuesday, October 25, 2016 9:21 AM by Rachel Laber

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me recorded live in Rochester

NPR's long-running weekly quiz show Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me was broadcast from a familiar backdrop this past weekend following the popular show's live recording at Rochester's Auditorium Theatre. 

Wait Wait... Don't Tell MeHost Peter Sagal and a group of panelists questioned contestants on today's news stories and headlines in front of a live studio audience. 

Rochester's own Garth Fagan was the main guest on the program. Fagan discussed the journey that took him from Jamaica to Rochester, NY, eventually forming his own dance company and choreographing the magnificent Lion King on Broadway. 

Rochester served as the perfect setting for Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me, and Visit Rochester is thrilled to see our community promoted on a national level.
