What do you think is New Jersey’s best historical offering? Thirty-two of the Garden State’s amazing historical sites were selected to appear in the second annual #NJTVTourismTourney bracket. This past year’s event crowned Red Mill Museum Village in Clinton as victorious. The historic venue earned a trophy and a broadcast segment on In Your Neighborhood: History. Overall, this year’s tournament drew 202% more engagement and 283% more votes than the inaugural 2018 tournament.
Nick Acocella, host of NJTV’s Pasta & Politics, passed away in June 2020 at the age of 77. He left two final episodes of his show – half cooking lesson, half political conversation – to air posthumously in July 2020. Governor Phil Murphy, former Governor Chris Christie, and Senate President Steve Sweeney eulogized the political journalist. NJTV News Chief Political Correspondent Michael Aron paid tribute in an essay: “He was one of a kind… He energized me. He was my friend.”
