Roger Ebert Wins 'New Yorker' Caption Contest
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
The New Yorker magazine is famous for its cartoons and holds a regular contest inviting readers to send in captions. The latest winner is Roger Ebert of Chicago, Illinois - yes, that Roger Ebert, the movie critic. He's been trying to win for years. The New Yorker says Ebert won after submitting contest entries 107 times.
Here's a new assignment, Mr. Ebert. Why don't you write us one of those funny news stories? You know, the ones that come at 30 minutes past the hour.
It's MORNING EDITION.
