Happy trails, Carl!
You may have already heard through less reliable news sources that Carl Kasell, the newsreader on Morning Edition for the past thirty years, has decided to retire from that job. Lotsa 'Splainin' 2 Do has done the legwork, and these preliminary reports are in fact true.
Mr. Kasell is now 75 years old and has earned his rest.
Answering the next most important question, Carl is NOT retiring from his job as announcer on Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me. When that happens, it's a sign of the apocalypse.
Stay tuned for further details.
And, oh, by the way, Mr. Kasell... all us faceless listeners out in radioland love you and wish you the best.
