Weekend Edition Sunday

Sundays, 8:00-10:00am

Whether revealing events in small-town America or overseas, or profiling notable personalities, Weekend Edition from NPR News appreciates the extraordinary details that make up every story. This two-hour weekend morning newsmagazine covers hard news, a wide variety of newsmakers, and cultural stories with care, accuracy, and a wink of humor.

Weekend Edition Sunday with Rachel Martin combines the news with colorful arts and human-interest features, appealing to the curious and eclectic. The show features interviews with newsmakers, artists, scientists, politicians, musicians, writers, theologians and historians. And the highlight for many listeners is the puzzle segment with Puzzlemaster Will Shortz, the crossword puzzle editor of The New York Times.
