Weekdays, 10am to 12noon, 7pm to 9 pm

All Sides with Ann Fisher is a two-hour, daily public-affairs talk show designed to – over time – touch upon all sides of the issues and events that shape life in central Ohio. Listeners participate via telephone, e-mail and, very soon, Twitter and text messaging, to add to the conversations. As always at WOSU, the coverage is fair and balanced with a civil tone.

Topics are driven by the top news stories of the day – local, regional, national and international — and the trends in what we read and what we like to eat, where we worship and play, and more. Local issues and news-related topics will tend to dominate the first hour with larger issues and authors saved for the second.

Guests will include leaders in their fields, the vanguard of their movements, the hearts and souls of the central Ohio community, the authors that make us think.
