Ian Tosh, HSPH’s new manager for Media and Educational Technology Services (METS), had an eventful Halloween. Ian’s year-and-a-half old son Nolan shares his father’s enthusiasm for audio-visual devices and loves to play with an old microphone around the house. An idea for a unique Halloween costume was hatched as his son also bears some resemblance to NPR’s OnPoint host Tom Ashbrook, a family favorite.
When the costume was a big hit in his neighborhood, Ian decided to send Tom a photo of the young broadcaster. This led to two NPR blog posts, hundreds of Facebook “likes,” and a gracious invitation to tour the NPR studio and meet Tom.
Enjoy the articles below!
