On Point

Tom Ashbrook will not return to On Point

Feb 14, 2018

Tom Ashbrook, host of the WBUR / NPR news call-in program On Point, will no longer host the show nor return to WBUR.  Boston University, which operates WBUR, announced this decision today after an independent review concluded that his behavior had created a dysfunctional workplace. A parallel review by the University concluded that Ashbrook’s behavior was not sexual in nature and did not constitute sexual harassment.

Starting Monday, July 23, New Orleans listeners will be able to hear NPR's On Point weekday mornings from 9 - 11 a.m. on 89.9 WWNO. On Point is one of the best, most compelling news and information programs on radio, with its daily two-hour blend of expert guests and listener calls conducted with great skill, intelligence and insight by host Tom Ashbrook.
