Justin Waite

This satirical panel game has been running on BBC Radio Wales since 2009, but this most recent, sixth series, has seen some changes.

The most notable of these is that it's got a new host. Previously hosted by Justin Waite, a local breakfast radio host, it's now presented by Dan Mitchell, the runner-up on ITV1's Show Me The Funny.

My feelings towards this show are similar to Radio Scotland's The Guessing Game, really, in that it is mixed. It's below par compared to the other satirical comedies around like Have I Got News for You and The News Quiz. Also, the final round of What's The Story? is just HIGNFY's "Missing Words" round without the guest publication, which is often the funniest bit...

Then again, there were some amusing asides. The main one this time came from panellist Elis James who talked about a friend of his who went to a strip club in Las Vegas who became as Welsh as you could possibly get.

What's The Story? has it's moments, and it's nice to see Radio Wales putting some money into comedy, but I'm not sure this is the best comedy they can make.
