Taped at Molloy College, the program provides an in-depth look at what needs to be done to make Long Island a more dynamic place to live and work by exploring the economic and business trends that impact the people of Nassau and Suffolk counties. Each week Emmy-winning journalist Jim Paymar interviews area business leaders and industry experts, discussing what is driving the economy and what is expected of Long Island going forward.
Paymar, a veteran broadcaster who has reported for such outlets as Business Week, CNBC, WABC-TV, WCBS-TV, WNBC-TV, also serves as the President of the Molloy Business Channel.

"I have lived on Long Island for more than twenty years and share the same concerns as my neighbors," says Paymar. "The Long Island Business Report addresses crucial issues that directly impact the nearly three million residents who call Long Island home. We bring together top industry and government leaders, educators and entrepreneurs to discuss areas of concern to keep Long Island competitive and growing. In the recent aftermath of Superstorm Sandy and its devastating impact on businesses and residential neighborhoods, it's important we provide a forum for ideas and solutions to ensure that Long Island continues to thrive."
