Weekend Edition Sunday covers newsmakers, artists, scientists, politicians, musicians, writers, thinkers, theologians and all manner of news events.Originally hosted by Susan Stamberg, the show has been anchored by Liane Hansen since 1989.


Senior News Analyst Daniel Schorr and Puzzlemaster Will Shortz have been with the program from the beginning, and a wide variety of commentators and essayists help round out the weekly offerings: humorist Andy Borowitz slings satirical arrows at big-shots, celebrities, and politicians of all stripes; Diane Roberts takes a sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant view of life in the South; and transplanted Brit Tim Brookes offers his impressions of life on these shores.

Weekend Edition Sunday is heard on nearly 600 NPR stations across the United States, and around the globe on NPR Worldwide.
