NPR must realize that OnPoint WAS Tom Ashbrook. In protest of his firing, I am unsubscribing from this podast.
In addition, it is important to note that the other hosts on this show are nowhere near as good as Tom. His range of knowledge on so many subjects, as well as his empathy and fairness in collecting views from people all over the country, is second to none. The show's regular female hosts, esp. Jane Clayson, on the other hand, are painful to listen to and really are a step down from Tom. I must say that Jane Clayson's manners as an intervewer are atrocious as she frequently interrupts guests.
