Committed to robust coverage of the midterm elections, NJTV hosted three state Congressional debates and one U.S. Senate debate from the Agnes Varis NJTV Studio in Newark. Each debate was complemented by expert commentary and analysis, led by anchors Mary Alice Williams and Michael Hill. The U.S. Senate debate between Bob Hugin and incumbent U.S. Senator Bob Menendez was co-moderated by NJTV News Chief Political Correspondent Michael Aron and PBS NewsHour correspondent Lisa Desjardins. It was streamed live across the country on PBS NewsHour‘s website and Facebook page.
On Election Night (November 6), NJTV News provided live coverage on-air and online of New Jersey elections, with on-location reporting from campaign headquarters across the state.
With WNET’s acquisition of NJ Spotlight, NJTV News and NJ Spotlight teamed up to bring a new, multi-platform approach to local, in-depth journalism in New Jersey, forming one of the largest and most comprehensive news and public affairs organizations in the state. The result: furthering both entities’ public service missions.
