On Point.....with WBUR's Tom Ashbrook
Starting out as a replacement for Christopher Lydon's "The Connection", Tom Ashbrook took the 10-Noon spot, now called "On Point" on WBUR, and now syndicated to the rest of the country through NPR (which also means we get less local content).
He has been hosting that shift since right after 9/11. Boston Magazine has this look at Tom Ashbrook, who had never worked in radio before.
"Twelve years ago, WBUR’s Tom Ashbrook had never worked in radio. Today, from his small Boston studio, he hosts one of the most popular and influential shows on public radio, heard each week on 240 stations nationwide. And he’s only just getting started."
