Fair Game from PRI with Faith Salie was an experimental web and audio/radio hybrid daily public radio program which covered the important stories of the day and used humor to tease out what it all meant. The program was produced and distributed nationally by PRI. Hosted by Faith Salie, and fed weeknights and online, the show featured newsmaker and celebrity interviews and regular appearances by the comedians. It often asked for listener feedback and contributions via its website, morefairgame.org and featured numerous segments. Regularly occurring segments included Why Do They Hate Us?, Seemingly Simple Solutions to Intractable Problems, and Bathed in Glory.

The program was featured in The New York Times in June 2007.[1]

Fair Game ceased broadcast on May 30, 2008, PRI cited the fact that a major national underwriter was not attracted to the program as a reason for cancelling the show. The article also states that there is a potential web-only version for the program in the works. [2]
