With an estimated audience of 26,000 listeners each week, the show is produced and hosted by WBNJ General Manager William Clanton Jr. and Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce CEO, Lori Pepenella.

The program’s listener base consists of potential visitors, second home owners, new residents and local audiences. The 15 minute interviews provide insight to what it takes to create events, carry on traditions and operate a successful business in a shore community.
