April 15, 2013 — New York — NJTV’s Best Places to Live was awarded Best Magazine Program at the 56th Annual New York Emmy Awards Sunday night, in a ceremony at the Marriott Marquis’ Broadway Ballroom at Times Square. The series’ executive producer Angelina Vivolo Cicala accepted the award.
In the new local series, host and New York Daily News Real Estate Editor Jason Sheftell takes viewers through the vibrant histories of areas across New Jersey and explains how different influences have made each among the best places to live in the state.
The pilot episode of Best Places To Live debuted on NJTV in July, 2012, and visited the New Jersey Gold Coast towns of Jersey City & Hoboken. In addition to looking at beautiful homes, sampling the local cuisine and meeting some local folks who call these communities home, the episode gave the area’s history and put in context the roles that these towns played in the lives of immigrants who came there from all over the world. Watch it online now.
Next stop for Best Places: Asbury Park and Long Branch, premiering on May 7 on NJTV.
The show is produced by Richard Mcintosh and Alan Goldsher, the principals of Re-Invention TV in conjunction with New Jersey Monthly magazine.
New Jersey Monthly editor Ken Schlager serves as consulting editor on the series. The series is sponsored by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, K. Hovnanian Home Builders and Union Center National Bank.
