After 5 Decades of Broadcasting, NPR's Carl Kasell Announces Retirement
NPR's Carl Kasell will retire after a five-decade career in broadcasting. Kasell's final broadcast "Wait Wait.. Don't Tell Me!" will air this spring. Carl was an anchor for NPR's "Morning Edition" for 30 years before entering into his role as "Official Judge and Scorekeeper" for the NPR news quiz show in 1988. "I can honestly say I am the luckiest man around to be able to have worked at a job I love for so many years. It's truly been a joy for me," Carl said. Kasell will continue as "Scorekeeper Emeritus" in retirement and leave recorded custom voice mail greetings for the show's winners.
