Notes 2016 December
Ask Me Another Joins Saturday Lineup on CapRadio News
Starting this weekend, exciting changes are coming to Saturday mornings on the News Station! Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me moves to 10:00 AM. Then at 11:00 AM, we're adding Ask Me Another from NPR.

“It's a fun, fast paced quiz program with a live audience and celebrity guests,” says Chief Content Officer Joe Barr. “It’s definitely in the spirit of Wait Wait but with its own unique approach.” Car Talk is winding down production of its best-of shows so we think this is an ideal time to add a fresh new show to the Saturday lineup.

The Best of Car Talk will continue to air Sundays at 10:00 AM and is available anytime online at

Sammy Caiola Joins CapRadio As Health Reporter
Capital Public Radio welcomes Sammy Caiola to the newsroom as our new health reporter. She joins CapRadio after covering health in California for the last several years, during which she has chased federal insurance reform, debunked wellness myths and watched neighborhood health efforts quietly save lives.

"Covering health is more important than ever," Caiola says, "This beat affects people of every age, race and zip code, and there’s never a shortage of stories.”

In 2015, Caiola completed a data fellowship at the University of Southern California, which led to a three-part series on black child death in Sacramento County. She has also reported extensively on autism spectrum disorder, reproductive health care, LGBT health, and conjoined twinning.

Caiola has degrees in journalism and gender studies from Northwestern University. Before joining CapRadio, she was a health reporter at The Sacramento Bee.

See Caiola's latest stories at, follow her on Twitter @sammycaiola, and keep up with her coverage @CapRadioHealth .
