Thanks, Carl

Carl Kasell has been delivering the news to NPR listeners since the very first Morning Edition was broadcast in 1979.  Starting Monday, though, he’ll get a chance to to sleep in. Carl’s continuing his duties on Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, but  retires as a newscaster at 11 o’clock.

Carl looked back on his career with both NPR’s Renee Montagne and WITF’s Tim Lambert this morning. Montagne dug up some incredible jingles and radio dramas from Carl’s pre-NPR career, and Lambert asked for tips on working the early shift.
