I was a devoted fan of Tom Ashbrook, but thank you for rousting Robert Siegel from retirement. I had forgotten how good he is. While he does not have Tom’s hilarious bombast, he is equally well-read, insightful and up-to-date on his guests. He is the ideal host: intelligent with a fine sense of humor, able to ask challenging questions, unflappably polite. He draws out his guests (or guest correspondents on Friday), corrects them or the callers when they’re misinformed without insulting them, and keeps the show lively and moving along. As one other commenter noted, pausing the guest(s) before the break without strangling them is a skill that few hosts have. Robert can watch the clock without appearing to rush his guests. May he continue moderating “On Point”!
