On Point with Tom Ashbrook
In ballet, “on point” means up on your toes. In war, it’s the lead soldier on patrol. In conversation, it’s the heart of the matter.
That’s where the radio program "On Point" strives to be every day on their toes, out front and at the heart of what’s going on. "On Point" begins airing this month on 90.1 WFYI, Mondays through Fridays, at 11 p.m.
Hosted by award-winning journalist Tom Ashbrook, the show’s lively conversation covers everything from breaking news to ancient poetry, and features writers, politicians, journalists, artists, scientists and ordinary citizens from around the world.
“Here at On Point, we’re looking to create a different kind of conversation about the country and the world we live in — about who we are, and where we’re going,” says Ashbrook. “Maybe it’s the kind of national conversation you’ve always wanted. Fast, fun, serious, surprising. And above all, unflinchingly honest.”
