NJ Public Broadcasting Authority Board Approves Transfer of NJN to WNET

By Michael Aron

Following the Senate’s tacit approval of the transfer of NJN to New York-based WNET, the five-member New Jersey Public Broadcasting Authority met today to sanctify the transfer.  Channel 13’s Neal Shapiro said NJN will be reborn under Thirteen as NJPM, New Jersey Public Media.

    This is one of the biggest political “rip-offs” of “trough- eating” government officials ever to happen to the State of New Jersey. Just one other reason people don’t want to live in this state. Say good-by exclusive New Jersey coverage and revenues generated throuh the media for this state as well as educational television.
    Oh, by the way, don’t forget to thank the governor for increasing the unemployment rate!

    For a suposedly finance savy Rebublican Christy miss the investment of taking the State commercial ourselves. We would have kept the New Jerseyness of it and retained actual New Jersey honest coverage we have been used too. Oh ! Answered my own questions- obviously afraid of HONESTY!!!

  3. Bill B says:

    A majority of the government officials who run New Jersey are either shockingly uninformed or are trying to pull the wool over the eyes of their constituents. Either way it’s unconscionable to think turning over NJN to WNET is a good thing.

    I’ve been a viewer and a supporter of NJN for 30 years. I feel I’ve been robbed of the opportunity to see the story of my state on television. No network outside of New Jersey has any incentive to tell New Jersey’s story.

    We don’t need a NJ news channel, so we can share one with NY. We used to share a governor ,too. So why not have Gov. Christy resign and let Gov. Cuomo run things here, too. That would save us some money.

    Governor Chrisitie and his yes posse behind him have done a crack job at ruining the good things this state had to offer. He has given false testimony about the merits of moving NJN to WNET and WHYY. He has done the very same to the public workers of New Jersey.
    He is a good lawyer and made his case to a puppet jury/ legislature.
    Keeping the working public poor and uninformed is his victory….
    The monies he has directed to Xanadau and the Revel Casino projects could have kept NJN on for many years, since it only was a 10 million dollar budget, verses the almost billion dollar giveaway this year alone, not to mention the monies directed toward moving business’ from one municipality to another and giving them tax amnesty for decades to come….yeah, it’s all about the wealthy.
