Publisher's Summary

There’s been a murder in studio one, and everyone’s a suspect. Recorded live at the Minetta Lane Theatre, a dozen Today and NBC News anchors take center stage in this hilarious radio play. First released in 1941, Murder in Studio One is a whodunit following a female private eye and her fast-talking sidekick as they reluctantly take the case of a murder in a New York radio station. Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb lead an all-star NBC News cast in the comedic mystery produced in partnership with Audible. Dateline’s Keith Morrison lends his iconic voice as the narrator. Written by Norman Corwin, Murder in Studio One has been adapted with permission from the Norman Corwin Administrative Trust.

Do another one, please.

Although the Today show members should probably not quit their morning jobs to chase Broadway, they were still very enthusiastic and entertaining in their roles in Murder in Studio One. They should make this an annual event!

A reminder of what made live radio so enjoyable!

A fun, fast paced farce that twists and turns with a great comedic effect! Join your favorite today show news anchors as they do a live radio broadcast that will get you laughing from start to finish. An enjoyable half hour. Well done.

absolutely terrible.

this is a terrible program. trying to be a somewhat comedic take on a who dunnit. the cast over plays the stereotypical accents to the point of ear stabbing annoyance and the plot is beyond asinine.

DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS

It is horrible. Stupider than an actual morning show. I’m sorry I spent even 5 minutes with it. I only checked one star bc it was required to check something in order to rebuy. I meant to give it NO stars.

Inchoate but cute

Starts weird, but stick with it, the ending will have you smiling. The performances are a bit over the top, a little restraint and straighter playing might have helped because the writing would support a straight delivery, but the fun is infectious.

Cute mystery!

Very enjoyable story! Hoda Kotb killed…definitely not literally. She and Savannah Guthrie did a great job. It was a fun way to getaway and get lost in a story.

A fun radio drama, full of suspense and style

I enjoyed all the different characters' voices!
The "tinny " piano added wonderful texture to the performance.
