About The Point

The Point is your daily brief on news, sports and events in the Triangle and your wider world, served up with a hint of attitude. Every weekday, we break down what you need to know to look smart at the watercooler AND the corner bar, all in the time it takes to brush your teeth.

The Point is written by the team of people just like you: Busy, ambitious and loving life in central NC. We’ve got the top jobs, hot concerts and stupid news stories you’ll be sharing with friends alongside the important stuff like world and national news and politics.
