PETER SAGAL, HOST:
Thank you so much, everybody. It’s time for the WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME Bluff The Listener game. Call 1-888-Wait-Wait to play our game on the air. Hi, you’re on WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME.
ANDY FORAN: Hello, this is Andy Foran. I grew up in Birmingham, Michigan, but I’m now living in Fairbanks, Alaska.
(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)
SAGAL: You moved to Fairbanks. You couldn’t stand the weather here in Michigan; you moved to Fairbanks.
FORAN: Yeah, it wasn’t quite dark or cold enough.
SAGAL: I understand. Well, welcome to the show, Andy. You’re going to play the game in which you must try to tell truth from fiction. Carl, what is Andy’s topic?
CARL KASELL, HOST:
“After The Break, I’ll Sing You The News.”
SAGAL: These are tough times for local TV news teams. Reporters standing in front of burning buildings just don’t cut it. There are so many kittens to watch on YouTube.
