The fourth season of the Minnesota Public Radio-produced St. Paul variety show Wits, which piloted as an MPR-only broadcast, will be the first debuting in national distribution. All MPR News stations carry the show, as well as “more than a dozen” other stations, according to MPR spokesperson Tara Schlosser.
The season premiere, featuring Wait, Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me! panelist Paula Poundstone and rock musician Robyn Hitchcock, will tape March 15 at the Fitzgerald Theater — the regular home of Wits as well as A Prairie Home Companion — and be released for broadcast March 22.
