Our Week In The Web: January 23, 2015

We're letting you know ahead of time this week that we're going to be doing a lot more on Facebook in the coming days and weeks and months. It's a space we're constantly adjusting, but we think there's more that can be done in a meaningful way with that audience. We're going to post more articles and audio links, at more times of the day, with a new focus on connecting you most to the content that matters at the time when it matters most to you. We want your feedback on these changes, and we'll look for it here, in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio. Stay tuned! (And say hello to our stellar crop of spring interns, won't you?)
