WLIW-FM In Conversation

WLIW-FM In Conversation brought dynamic conversation and voices from the East End of Long Island and beyond to radio listeners, addressing topics like the state of hospitality and sports franchises during the pandemic, to the importance of arts and culture as a way to address social justice issues.

Guests include Sarah Arison and Aileen Park (National YoungArts Foundation), Deborra-Lee Furness (actor, director, human rights activist), Anna Deavere Smith (actor, playwright, professor), Agnes Gund (philanthropist) and Jonathan Tisch (Chairman and CEO, Loews Hotels & Co, co-owner of The New York Giants).

Anna Deavere Smith discussed her identity, Black theater, the extent of art’s power to create social progress, and much more.
