Wisconsin Public Radio has announced that “Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know?” will end production on June 30. The final live broadcast will take place June 25 in Madison, Wis.
According to a press release on the WPR website, the live, weekly program has been on the air since 1985. At the peak of the quiz show’s popularity, it was carried by more than 300 stations and heard weekly by more than 1.5 million listeners.
The live schedule and planned tours are not affected, and after production ends, archived episodes will continue to be available on the show’s website.
“Michael and his team have been part of our Saturday mornings for more than a generation, and we are truly grateful for all that Michael and this program have done for WPR,” said WPR Director Mike Crane in the announcement. “I also want to extend our thanks to the stations that carried the show; our distribution partner, Public Radio International; and, of course, show musicians John Thulin and Jeff Hamann, announcer Stephanie Lee and the entire staff of the show.”
WPR will announce what program will fill the two-hour Saturday morning slot at a later date.
