''As It Happens: Radio that's a real troper.'' This long-running Canadian radio show on Creator/{{CBC}} Radio One tackles news around the world, specializing in obscure but amusing news stories and giving alternate viewpoints on bigger stories. Their key feature is that they always use outgoing telephone interviews with newsmakers, as opposed to using their main studio for visitors or communicating with their secondary facilities. With humble beginnings in 1968 as "What's New in Saskatoon?", the show eventually changed its name and jumpstarted the careers of radio legends like Barbara Frum. It is currently hosted by Carol Off and Barbara Budd. ---- Tropes related to ''As It Happens'' include: * GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff - ''As It Happens'' airs in dozens of countries around the world, but in Finland, fans will frequently get up at 5:30 a.m. local time to listen to the show. * {{Pun}} - Every intro ends with one of these. * PunctuatedForEmphasis - The classic "goddamn cabbage" interview given by Barbara Frum. * RealSongThemeTune - Moe Kuffman's "Curried Soul". * RunningGag - Whenever a British city is mentioned on the show, its distance is measured from Reading. This became a running gag after London was mentioned as "thirty miles east of Reading". ----

Incredibly Lame Pun is only a Pothole Magnet for troper puns; in-universe puns should be linked to Pun
* IncrediblyLamePun - Every intro ends with one of these. ** The intro pun sometimes winds up being a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
