About Weekend Edition Saturday
Each week, nearly 4 million listeners tune in to Weekend Edition Saturday for two hours of news, features and entertainment anchored by Scott Simon, NPR's Peabody Award-winning host and corre-spondent.
Weekend Edition Saturday has a unique and entertaining roster of other regular contributors. Marin Alsop, conductor of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, talks about music. Daniel Pinkwater, one of the biggest names in children's literature, talks about and reads stories with Scott. Financial journalist Joe Nocera follows the economy. Howard Bryant of EPSN.com and NPR's Tom Goldman chime in on sports. Keith Devlin, of Stanford University, unravels the mystery of math, and Will Grozier, a London cabbie, talks about good books that have just been released, and what well-read people leave in the back of his taxi.
The program is produced and distributed by NPR.
