As part of their effort to bring the best Events and Things to Do to Long Islanders, LongIsland.com's Editor in Chief, Cait Russell, is now participating in a regular radio segment on WLIE 540AM every Sunday morning, reviewing the best upcoming happenings from the events calendar. The segment, “My Friend George”, hosted by George Romano, is featured on WLIE 540AM every Sunday Morning from 9-10AM, and reaches an audience of thousands on Long Island, and in the surrounding tri-state area.

In March of this year, LongIsland.com launched a completely new site design that is more interactive for users – one of the major highlights being an improved events calendar packed with a robust assortment of upcoming events. Cait Russell, Editor in Chief, has been quoted as saying “There is always something to do on Long Island – you just need to know where to find it!” This proactive attitude has lead her and the content team at LongIsland.com to create a truly thorough resource for local events and happenings, and now, every Sunday morning, she will be highlighting the best upcoming events on the radio segment “My Friend George”.

LongIsland.com was established in 1996, and has long been regarded as Long Island's go-to online resource for locals. This is the first time that LongIsland.com will be partnering with a radio station, and this expansion into a new media platform gives LongIsland.com the opportunity to reach an even broader audience of Long Islanders, that may not have been aware of the recent changes and updates to the website. According to Ms. Russell, “The timing could not be more perfect – with the new design on the site launched earlier this year, and the expansion of the Events Calendar, this is the perfect time to showcase our site as a resource for Long Islanders looking for local things to do.”

The newly formed partnership between LongIsland.com and WLIE is yet another example of Long Island Media's persistent dedication to providing Long Islanders with the best online resource possible with LongIsland.com. By introducing the site to the radio listeners of WLIE, LongIsland.com is continuing to solidify its place as the top online resource for Long Islanders looking for events, dining, and local attractions.
