Wait, Wait bumps Whad'Ya Know

While its great to have Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me in the lineup, I wish you hadn't made space by bumping Whadd'ya Know to an hour later. It was a pleasure to listen to a show broadcast LIVE, in which we as listeners could participate in real time. Why not keep Michael Feldman live and simply add Wait, Wait (which is recorded live but not broadcast live) to 1:00?


[Program Director John Hingsbergen replies:

We are grateful that you took the time to share your opinion. We'll be monitoring the responses we get from listeners to this programming change so we can evaluate the effectiveness of it.  

You probably know that many stations choose to air "Wait Wait" at 11:00 right after "Car Talk" with much success.  You are correct about the "live" factor for "Whad'Ya Know" and that's one of the things we'll need to continue monitoring.

I hope you'll get a chance to catch this week's Friday Feedback since we are likely to have a number of reactions to the new Saturday lineup.]
