A great show! Ann will be missed!

All Sides with Ann Fisher was the first NPR show I got hooked on back in 2015. Because of this, I became a member of WOSU.

Ann’s shows—particularly the weekly reporter roundtable and conversations with Ken Rudin were deeply informative. I also always looked forward to Tech Tuesdays and Wellness Wednesdays.

Ann said on her last show that All Sides will go on and I’m sure it will continue to be successful, but we will definitely miss Ann. I listened to almost every episode since 2015 and her warmth and inquisitive approach to both local and national topics really helped me to understand so many different things.

Good luck, Ann, on your future! You will be missed!!! Thanks for being such a engaged member of the Columbus community. Enjoy your retirement!

Waiting for it to get better.

I used to listen to this show everyday. Now maybe a hr a day if I can get through it. Shows come and go I guess.
