News-Review and Suffolk Times editor Michael White will be appearing Friday morning on the “Going Green” radio show hosted by Group for the East End president Bob DeLuca.

The show airs at 11 a.m. on WPPB (Peconic Public Broadcasting) at 88.3 FM and runs until noon.

Mr. White will be joined by fellow East End newspaper editors David Rattray, editor of the East Hampton Star, and Joe Shaw, executive director of the Press News Group, which publishes The Southampton Press eastern and western editions, and the East Hampton Press.

The journalists will take to the studio for an in-depth discussion on the region’s top environmental issues.

“From the controversial culling of deer, to the future of water quality, learn how the local media decides what issues matter and where the truth lies,” reads a press announcement from WPPB, “while we consider the impact these decisions have on community perceptions and attitudes about the future of our environment.”

Listeners are invited to join the conversation by posting questions on the WPPB Facebook page.

The show is produced by award-winning broadcaster Bonnie Grice.

PLUM TV COURTESY PHOTO | Fred and Karen Lee, owners of Sang Lee Farms in Peconic, are featured on the pilot episode of The Real Deal, a new business show now airing on Plum TV and WPPB-FM.

A new show featuring East End businesses premiered Friday at 3 p.m. on Plum TV’s Hamptons channel — Cablevision Ch. 18 — and at 5:30 p.m. on Peconic Public Broadcasting radio, 88.3 WPPB-FM.

The show, called The Real Deal and hosted by radio personality Bonnie Grice features the history, challenges and successes of East End businesses.

The show is a collaboration of Plum TV and Sandra Novick of Suffolk County National Bank, which is sponsoring the show along with Kandell, Farnworth and Pubins, an accounting firm in Riverhead and East Hampton.

“It provides insight into successful businesses on the East End,” Ms. Novick said “The way is not always paved in gold; [the business owners] also met challenges that they were able to approach in a unique way for their businesses and be successful.”

The Real Deal is a spin-off of Plum TV’s Beyond the Boardroom, a business show featuring successful business leaders from around the world such as Donna Karan and Donald Trump, according to Helen Zleland of Plum TV.

“I thought it would be great to do a show that has our local celebrities of business, so to speak,” Ms. Novick said.

The 30-minute pilot episode will feature the owners of Peconic-based Sang Lee Farms and the Monauk-based advertising agency Blumenfeld and Fleming. It will air at various times from now through June. A second show will be filmed in June and air in July through September.
