The Builders Institute/Building and Realty Institute of Westchester and the Mid-Hudson Region (BI/BRI) recently launched the first broadcast of its new radio program on AM 970 The Answer (WNYM). Called “Constructive Conversations with The Builders Institute (BI)”, the show is hosted by Jeff Hanley, Associate Executive Director of the BI/BRI. It can be heard Saturdays from 7:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The first segment of “Constructive Conversations with The Builders Institute (BI)” debuted on Nov. 24. Mr. Hanley interviewed Albert Annunziata, Executive Director of the BI/BRI and Glen Riddell, Principal of The Riddell Group of Albany (and the Lobbying Consultant to The Builders Institute). The title of the show was “A Look at Statewide Legislative Issues Affecting the Building, Realty and Construction Industries.” Podcasts of the show can be found here.

The wide range of topic areas to be discussed in a radio interview format is immense, taking into consideration the myriad of factors that touch and are affected by these industries and their suppliers and professional service firms. Whether it is planning, state and local advocacy, building and/or development, construction, architecture, realty management, legalities, finance, or the many supplier/service firms associated with the industry.
