The Point Puzzle is a weekly puzzle challenging listeners with word puzzles and logic puzzles. Every week a winner from the last week is selected from emailed answers and announced on air and a new puzzle is posed.
The puzzle airs on KPOV on “The Point” on Wednesday mornings between 9:00 am and 9:30 am and replays at 5pm just before Open Air.
