Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me” is visiting the University of Missouri this Friday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. in Jesse Hall. He will be discussing the origin of the show and some of its most memorable episodes and guests, as well as sharing his own colorful commentary on current events.
Tickets range from $18-32, and all Mizzou students are half-price. Tickets can be purchased on the University Concert Series website or at the box office in Jesse Hall.
If you’re as big an NPR junkie as the rest of the J-School Buzz staff (Broadcast kids at the Missouri School of Journalism, perhaps?) then I’m sure we’ll see you there!
