For the first time ever, the popular radio news quiz show, “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” will be recorded on the University of Chicago campus.

The recording is scheduled to take place at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 30 at Mandel Hall, 1131 E. 57 St. “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me” is a weekly hour-long quiz program that is co-produced by NPR and Chicago Public Radio.

The U. of C. Institute of Politics (IOP) was one of several university departments that collaborated to bring the show to the campus.

“There’s tremendous enthusiasm on part of our students and participants who brought it here,” said Darren Reisberg, executive director of the IOP.

Tickets sold out last weekend. For more information please contact the Logan Center Box Office at 773-702-2787.
