Trenton – Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno (holding scissors) joined, left to right, NJTV General Manager John Servidio, NJ Today Anchor and Managing Editor Mike Schneider, President and CEO Neal Shapiro, , State Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff and NJTV Chief Political Correspondent Michael Aron, for a ribbon cutting event on Jan. 28, to mark the opening of the new television studio at the Statehouse in Trenton.
The state-of-the-art studio is located in the Welcome Center at the Statehouse and will be used by NJTV as the setting for Aron’s two weekly public affairs programs focused on New Jersey issues, On the Record with Michael Aron and Reporters Roundtable with Michael Aron. It will also be used by the network to host interviews for its nightly news program, NJ Today with Mike Schneider, and other productions. The studio will also be available for use by other media organizations.
In 2011, NJTV took over the public broadcasting role in New Jersey that had previously been filled by New Jersey Network. As part of that transition the State sold nine radio stations that were part of NJN and used a portion of the proceeds to construct the new television studio.
