A New Jersey assemblyman is calling on the governor to scrap NJTV after what he calls an “unacceptable” lack of coverage of Gov. Chris Christie’s news conference on Tuesday.
The station, launched 40 years ago by lawmakers who felt neglected by Philadelphia and New York television news, was closed Thursday by politicians, including Gov. Chris Christie, who believe the state has no business in the broadcasting business.
Saying that New Jersey doesn’t need and cannot afford its own television station, Gov. Christie on Monday announced a deal that calls for transfer operations of the state-owned New Jersey Network.
Christie originally wanted the station sold or its license transferred. Now the administration wants the state to retain the license and enter an agreement for others to provide content.
