Podcast: The News-Review staff on its choices for 2018 People of the Year

In a tradition that dates back to 1988, the News-Review announced its annual selections for People of the Year in Thursday’s newspaper. 

The selections include Overall People of the Year: The Students of McGann-Mercy and many more. The rest of the slate can be found in Thursday’s paper, which is now on newsstands.


The full stories will be revealed online throughout the next week and a video about each winner will be shared following a March awards ceremony that is sponsored by People’s United Bank in Riverhead.

For this week’s podcast, sponsored by Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead, our staff members talk about the reasons behind each selection.
