On Tuesday, May 26, WLNG 92.1 FM stopped by Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport in its Rolling Roadcaster Bus for a dance break to show their appreciation for the hospital’s healthcare heroes.

“You’re heroes!” said New York State Assembly Member Anthony Palumbo, who was on hand to honor essential workers. “A round of applause for all of you. Thank you for all your great work.”

WLNG’s Gary Sapiane and Bill Evans emceed the event, while the bus sported a banner reading “Where the ‘G’ stands for gratitude.” The song of choice was Andrew Gold’s “Thank You For Being A Friend,” which played at 7 PM.

The WLNG team has been making their way across both forks to thank essential workers in response to COVID-19, including Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

“Our community has shown the hospital such tremendous support in response to the pandemic,” said Paul Connor, the chief administrative officer of SBELIH. “Many thanks to WLNG for stopping by, playing some uplifting music, and honoring our staff for their continued hard work.”
