Peter Sagal (pronounced SAY-gahl) is best known as the witty host of the long-running National Public Radio news quiz program Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! He, the show’s staff, and celebrity (and quasi celeb) panelists take the program on the road, recording episodes before large and enthusiastic live audiences around the county. In addition, the multitalented 54-year-old Sagal is a humorist, journalist, essayist, and book author — as well as a writer, actor, and director for the theater and movies.
Quote: “I’m very spiritual and I’m Jewish by faith. I’m not a practicing Jew; I’m more of a recreational Jew. I celebrate the holidays and I try to inform my kids about their heritage because I think we all at some point have to defend our heritage, and if they get picked on I want them to know why.”
