Five Stars for Tom Ashbrook

By 2020MH - Oct 07 2019
Read more
I agree with many others that Tom Ashbrook made On Point what it was. I listen much less than I used to and I’m just not crazy about Megma. I think NPR cut off its nose to spite its face. I still listen on Fridays to Weekly News Roundup. I like that host a lot. (David Folkenflik?)

Bring back Tom Brook

By 1234$&&123 - Sep 26 2019
Read more
Tom Brook apologized for his action then why can’t he be pardoned?.What I heard about the allegations, he was bossy and mistreated women’s. This is not a big crime? His not having in the show is the greatest disservice. His excellent interviewing skills is unparalleled. He took journalism to a new height.I have to admit my interest for the show has declined ever since he was let go. No matter how good Meghna might be, Tom has an aura about himself that is so captivating that you are hooked to the show. Too err is only human. He can be pardoned and brought back!
