On Point

Award-winning journalist Tom Ashbrook hosts On Point, a two-hour call-in show with newsmakers, thinkers, journalists, artists, scientists and ordinary citizens contributing to the conversation.

Each hour opens with a news brief analyzing the day’s biggest stories, followed by an in-depth conversation and callers’ compelling personal reactions to news and important issues.

Ashbrook combines his journalistic instincts with a listener’s openness and curiosity — focusing on the relevant topics and deconstructing issues along with the audience. News analyst Jack Beatty, Senior Editor at The Atlantic Monthly, also guides the program by providing his own unique perspective to the conversation.
