The program features interviews with past and present residents, including Tony Award-winning singer/actress and Northport native Patti LuPone, actor and Dix Hills native Ralph Macchio, and Huntington resident Bunny Hoest, creator of the syndicated comic The Lockhorns.
Lloyd Harbor resident Bernadette Castro, a former New York State Parks Commissioner and former New York State Historic Preservation Officer, hosts and narrates.
"'Hometown Huntington' perfectly captures the spirit of WLIW's '21 Weeks of Summer' initiative," stated executive producer and WLIW21 acting general manager John Servidio. "It's a feel-good program that celebrates one of our local community's accomplishments and offerings, including beaches, harbors and great entertainment."
The "Hometown Huntington" DVD with bonus material – a private tour of Castro's Panfield estate – is available exclusively through WLIW21 at wliw.org and (800) 767-2121 beginning June 7.
