North Country Public Radio Premieres Fair Game with Faith Salie

North Country Public Radio will air the satirical news and entertainment show Fair Game with Faith Salie, beginning Monday, July 2. The new program will air on the station Mondays through Thursdays from 7 pm to 8 pm, replacing Open Source with Christopher Lydon, which has ceased production.

Produced by Public Radio International and based in New York City, Fair Game is a news and entertainment show, with comedy and live music as well as newsmaker and celebrity interviews. The show covers the important stories of the day, using 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.

"In a word, Fair Game is fabulous," says NCPR Program Director Jackie Sauter. "It's designed for a culturally connected, politically savvy audience, which matches our listeners perfectly. Fair Game is seriously funny radio that embraces a range of views broad enough to appeal to everyone. We think listeners will find Fair Game to be a fresh and funny addition to evening listening. It's a terrific program."

Host Faith Salie

Fair Game is hosted by Faith Salie, a star of Bravo's improvisational sitcom, Significant Others. She has worked on and appeared in several dramas and sitcoms — from a memorable turn in gold lamé on Sex and the City to reaching the arcane iconic status of a "tradable life form" for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fans. A graduate of Harvard University and a Rhodes Scholar, Salie has also been a pop-culture pundit on a variety of VH-1 shows as well as a stand-up comedian. She has also written several shows for the Oxygen Network. Fair Game marks her first foray into public radio, where she is immersed in the show as co-creator, host and writer/producer.
