ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota-based American Public Media has canceled the “Wits” radio show and put the podcast and stage show on hold.

APM produces and distributes the show. It announced the cancellation Monday.

In a statement, “Wits” creator and host John Moe said there will be no stage programs in Minnesota or on the road this fall.

“Wits” was launched in St. Paul in 2010 and had been picked up by more than 100 markets across the U.S. Guests had included Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1MSgst1 ) reports as of last year, “Wits” had failed to turn a profit.

Moe says he and his producers are looking to creating a digital “Wits 2.0” that “contains all the fun, passion and creativity you love.”
