Fair Game on KCPW
KCPW announces plans to air "Fair Game from PRI with Faith Salie," produced by Public Radio International. Based in New York, "Fair Game" is a news and entertainment program hosted by Faith Salie, possibly the only Rhodes Scholar who performs comedy intentionally. "Fair Game" covers the important stories of the day and uses insightful humor to tease out what it all means. The show also features newsmaker and celebrity interviews, live music and regular appearances by the country's best comedians – a variety show for the highest common denominator. "Fair Game from PRI" will begin airing Monday through Thursday at 7pm on February 26th, following "All Things Considered." In addition, "Open Source" with Chris Lydon moves to 8pm. "To The Point" will be dropped from KCPW's schedule.
KCPW, 88.3FM, 1010AM, www.kcpw.org.
