Produced live, To The Point presents informative and thought-provoking discussion in three discrete segments: "Making News," generated by the day's breaking news headlines;"Defining the Story," a highly researched, in-depth discussion of a single subject from the front pages; and "Reporter's Notebook," a news or human interest feature. In each segment, a dynamic mix of guests cover issues ranging from politics and international affairs to technology, the arts, and the environment.
