SCOTT SIMON, host:

You might have noticed that for the past couple of weeks we've been sending you to our new blog, "Weekend Soapbox." If you go there today, you'll see a video of me and Weekend Edition Sunday's Liane Hansen getting some tips from former CNN and FOX News anchor Rudi Bahktiar on how to captivate an audience.

Ms. RUDI BAHKTIAR (Anchor, FOX News): When you're closing the show, this is the most important of all.

LIANE HANSEN: Yeah.

Ms. BAHKTIAR: It's like that lover that you don't want to say goodbye to. You really give them that look of love. Come back, you want to see me again.

SIMON: Ah, do you want to see us again? See more about how we make radio here at Weekend Edition. Go to npr.org/soapbox and take a look. Do let us know what you think about our Weekend Edition behind the scenes videos so far.
