WFAN producers only told Gregg Giannotti there would be a surprise for him during the Boomer and Gio LIVE show at The Paramount in Huntington.
Gio did not know Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame President Chris R. Vaccaro would appear on stage before 1,500 people to inform him that he was selected for induction into the Hall for the Class of 2024.
“Since they were doing a special live event in Suffolk, I figured it was a perfect time and location to surprise Gio with the fun news,” said Vaccaro. “Thankfully, Boomer and WFAN programming lead Spike Eskin agreed and helped make it happen. A special thanks to former Sachem and East Islip athletic director Pete Blieberg for connecting the dots.”
