Weekend Edition Saturday

Airs Saturday, 5-9 am

Weekend Edition Saturday is the Saturday counterpart to Morning Edition. A little bit slower paced for the relaxing weekend, Weekend Edition has fewer but longer segments each hour than the faster-paced weekday Morning Edition. Featuring one of the most diverse and exciting correspondent lineup on NPR, Weekend Edition Saturday is the perfect Saturday morning companion. 

NPR's Peabody Award-winning correspondent Scott Simon and his experience bring a sophisticated perspective to his role as host of Weekend Edition Saturday. He has reported from civil wars in Bosnia and El Salvador, to hospital rooms, police stations, and more. Weekend Edition Saturday is well known for its musical performances, arts stories and interviews toward the end of the hour.    

Weekend Edition Saturday is produced by NPR. For more information, visit http://www.npr.org/programs/wesat.

KUNR's Tom Strekal is the local Saturday morning host during this program.
