Thoughtful, insightful, and intelligent
Fred Andrle is a thoughtful, insightful moderator who knows how to keep a debate show interesting without digressing into the theater that takes place on shows like Hannity or Franken. Andrele often seems to play devils advocate to try to explore an issue from every angle. He is always composed, but never dull. The show restores dignity to a genre that has unfortunately fallen into the hands of the polarizing pundits. I also enjoy that he is not afraid to talk about the arts, be it reading poetry, or talking about what artists or musicians are visiting Columbus. I am graduating from college soon and will be moving away from Columbus, but I will surely continue to listen to Andrele when I am not in the Columbus area.
Intelligent - a treasure of Columbus
Fred Andrle is a true treasure of Columbus. I tell people frequently how lucky we are, as a medium-sized city, to have such an intelligent, balanced talk show with excellent guests of national- and even world-stature. Great!
Fred is such a great asset to our community and will be sorely missed when he "retires" from Open Line. I hope he'll continue to return occassionally and "WOW" us again with his wit, style, and grace.
