The WNET Group, parent company of WLIW-FM, and Hirsch Media are partnering to produce “George Hirsch Lifestyle Radio,” a new public radio program and podcast that will explore a range of lifestyle topics. The new program is slated to premiere in fall 2021 on 88.3 WLIW-FM and wliw.org/radio.

The one-hour, weekly program will focus on conversations about food and lifestyle. The series, an extension of Hirsch’s long-running public television series “George Hirsch Lifestyle,” will begin taping this summer.

Co-hosted by Hirsch and chef and award-winning journalist Alex Goetzfried, “George Hirsch Lifestyle Radio” will explore how food can bring people together. Each week Hirsch and Goetzfried will speak to notable culinarians and compelling guests from the East End and beyond about memorable moments around the table.

“We are committed to providing our listeners with entertaining and engaging content that spotlights the magic of the East End community,” said Diane Masciale, the vice president and general Manager of WLIW21 and 88.3 WLIW-FM and executive producer of local productions at WLIW. “We are excited to partner with George and Alex to expand our lifestyle coverage.”

“Through my longstanding partnership with American Public Television and WLIW I have brought the magic of the East End to public television stations for 27 years,” Hirsch said. ”I am honored to partner with WLIW-FM and Executive Producer Diane Masciale to bring this entertaining content to an even broader audience.”

“As a life-long East End resident, I have a special connection to this unique place on Long Island, and I was honored to make my public media debut on George’s long-running TV series. I look forward to meaningful and expanded conversations on ‘George Hirsch Lifestyle Radio,’” Goetzfried said.

Hirsch, a five-time author, and Hirsch Media have made television for worldwide audiences for more than 25 years. His television work includes cooking and lifestyle series and specials. In 1994 he was the first TV host to take a cooking series outside of the studio’s confines and feature lifestyle content.

“APT first partnered with George in 1994 to pioneer on-camera outdoor cooking on public television, and we continue to share his philosophy of bridging good food with good living with viewers today,” added Thomas Davison, the director of APT Presentations at American Public Television. “With his new radio series, audiences will continue to benefit from George’s culinary expertise and his enthusiasm for sustainable living.”
