On Point on IPR News

Monday through Friday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Tom Ashbrook

A hybrid of a talk program and a news-magazine, "On Point" puts each day's news into context and provides a lively forum for discussion and debate. Topics chosen for the program are often taken from the biggest news stories of the day while others have a direct connection to issues that are at the core of what is urgent and important in the world at the moment. Interwoven are programs containing interviews with personalities, politicians, musicians, writers, and journalists. This second hour of On Point features unique content that is not aired in the first hour of the program, which can be heard weekdays from 9 to 10 a.m. on Iowa Public Radio News and Studio One.

The second hour of On Point will replace The Story, hosted by Dick Gordon. The Story will end production this fall. This is a decision that WUNC, which produces the program, made following Gordon's decision to step down from hosting the show.
