Peter Sagal of "Wait Wait..." to speak at WWC Commencement

The wait just got shorter: Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s long-running “Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me,” is returning to Asheville in May. This time, however, Sagal isn’t bringing his popular show, as he did in August at Asheville’s Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. Instead, he’ll bring a commencement address—his first—to be delivered May 17 at the 2014 Warren Wilson College Commencement. Sagal became host of “Wait Wait” in May 1998, just a few months after its debut as a news-quiz show produced by WBEZ-Chicago. The NPR show is now heard by more than four million people each week via 600 public radio stations and a popular podcast.

EcoDorm continues to be recognized as a trailblazer among college dorms
