The program’s creators are George Frangoulis and Ned Lightner. Frangoulis is the show’s producer and host, while his spouse, Kristin Frangoulis, is host of the show’s “Arts By the Bay.” Lightner, is in charge of technical production and direction.

"Good Morning, Belfast!" is produced in the second floor salon above The Old Professor’s Bookshop at 99 Main St. in downtown Belfast. However, for variety, some future shows will be produced at various locations outside the studio.
