Weekend Edition Sunday
KPBX: Sundays 6am-10am | KSFC: Sundays 5am-7am, 10am-11am

On Sundays, Weekend Edition combines the news with colorful arts and human-interest features, appealing to the curious and eclectic.  Weekend Edition Sunday features interviews with newsmakers, artists, scientists, politicians, musicians, writers, theologians and historians. The program has covered news events from Nelson Mandela's 1990 release from a South African prison to the capture of Saddam Hussein.

With a nod to traditional Sunday habits, the program offers a fix for diehard crossword addicts--word games and brainteasers with The Puzzlemaster--a.k.a. Will Shortz--puzzle editor of The New York Times.  A caller plays the latest word game on the air while listeners compete silently at home. The NPR mailbag is proof that the competition to go head-to-head with Shortz is rather…vigorous.

Hosted by Ayesha Rascoe
