Close Race in Public Radio Madness Ends with...

With an 8 percent lead, All Things Considered takes the prize from Wait Wait! Thanks for voting in our madness. Until next year...

The results are in for the end of our "March Madness" game with Public Radio programming at Utah Public Radio. The race began in March with 32 of UPR's programs. One of our locally produced shows, Science Questions by Sheri Quinn, made it all the way to the final four, but was beat out by NPR's Wait Wait! Don't Tell Me to make the end.

But now the votes are finally in, and in a very close race, All Things Considered has won the game! With an 8 percent lead, the show took over Wait Wait! Don't Tell Me.
