VPR Presents Tom Ashbrook
Tom Ashbrook began hosting On Point shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. But his career as a journalist years earlier. Ashbrook spoke about his career as a journalist in Manchester on November 6, 2013 as part of the Vermont Humanities Council's "First Wednesdays" series.
In this hour-long talk, Ashbrook shares his insights on the newspaper industry, the secrets to producing On Point, and why it takes ten public radio producers to make the show happen while most AM station talk shows have no producers at all.
