Weekend Edition

Saturday and Sunday: 5am-9am

Saturday mornings are made for Weekend Edition Saturday, hosted by NPR's Scott Simon. The program wraps up the week's news and offers a mix of analysis and features on a wide range of topics, including arts, sports, entertainment, and human interest stories.

Weekend Edition Sunday premiered on January 18, 1987, and was the last of NPR's major newsmagazines to hit air. Since then, Weekend Edition Sunday has covered news makers and artists, scientists and politicians, music makers of all kinds, writers, thinkers, theologians and all manner of news events. NPR's Rachel Martin hosts Weekend Edition Sunday.
