Governor Christie announced the plan for NJN is to turn the operation over to channel 13 in New York. It will be set up as a New Jersey non-profit with a new name – NJTV. The Governor said it will provide better PBS programming and more New Jersey-centric programming than the current NJN and that press reports that the news program will be discontinued aren’t true.
