    “There are so many storylines and excitement that builds up for the Hall of Fame Weekend,” said Carousso, who is the executive producer of WRHU’s Hall of Fame coverage. “Being that this is our second year, I truly believe that the programming will be even more engaging.”

    The 2 ½ hours of WRHU’s coverage begins at 11 AM EDT/8 AM PDT on Sunday, July 26, exclusively on 88.7 FM WRHU in New York and streaming online in high definition on www.WRHU.org and the FREE WRHU mobile app.

    “The big topics next weekend will include the controversial ‘steroid era’ for sure, but even more this year, the question of whether or not the all-time hits leader Pete Rose belongs in the Hall of Fame,” Carousso said. “I will certainly be covering these topics with expert guests – baseball writers and broadcasters; however, on the flip side, we cannot forget about the celebration of America’s Pastime.”

    In addition to executive producing WRHU’s coverage, Neil serves as the co-host of the Long Island Community Spotlight and the solo host for the #HOFLiveSpecial, along with reporting duties all weekend. Carousso will also give the audience a VIP pass to Cooperstown via articles, including breaking news and anecdotes from Hall of Famers, and video features, exclusive to Carousso Enterprises’ www.NeilACarousso.com.

    “It’s always enjoyable to be around a group of Hall of Fame players who were so great at their sport and just take in their stories from ‘back in the day’ and just marvel at what they accomplished at the highest level,” remarked Carousso.

    “Long Island Community Spotlight with Basia and Neil A. Carousso” and “WRHU’s 2nd Annual Hall of Fame Live Special with Neil A. Carousso” are radio talk shows in which baseball fans and enthusiasts honor and celebrate the men inducted that Sunday afternoon in Cooperstown and discuss the latest topics in the sport, while celebrating its 170-year history, highlighted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum.
