IDEAS Boston Moderator Tom Ashbrook Celebrates 10 Years of On Point 

October 14, 2011

Congratulations to IDEAS Boston Moderator Tom Ashbrook on the 10th anniversary of his acclaimed NPR news and talk show On Point, on WBUR.  Recruited to the station to relieve an exhausted crew taking callers in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Tom clearly found his next calling.  His energy, insight, empathy and wit are hallmarks of On Point and are the skills he brings each year to IDEAS Boston.  Plus, at IDEAS Boston we get to see the man behind the voice!

IDEAS Boston is next Thursday, October 20. The registration deadline has been extended to Monday, October 17, so if you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, make sure you do so at http://www.ideasboston.com/.
