To The Point on RADIO IQ & RADIO IQ w/BBC News

Weekdays at 7:00 pm on RADIO IQ

To The Point is a fast-paced, news-based program that focuses on the hot-button national issues of the day. Hosted by award-winning journalist Warren Olney, the hour-long show presents informative and thought-provoking discussion of major news stories -- front-page issues that attract a savvy and serious news audience.

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.

The result is an absorbing hour of smart, relevant radio!
