September 11, 2014 — TRENTON, NJ — NJTV, New Jersey’s public television network, announced that Chief Political Correspondent Michael Aron’s two public affairs programs, On the Record with Michael Aron and Reporters Roundtable with Michael Aron, will continue to broadcast while Aron recovers from heart surgery over the next several weeks. In his absence, Marie DeNoia Arohnson will step in as guest host.
On the Record with Michael Aron will continue to air weekly on Saturdays at 6:30pm and Sundays at 10am on NJTV. Reporters Roundtable with Michael Aron will be broadcast on a modified schedule, airing every other week on Saturdays at 5:30pm and Sundays at 9:30am starting September 13th on NJTV. On alternate weekends, NJTV will air the newsmagazine MetroFocus in the Roundtable timeslot.
Michael Aron, widely known as the “Dean of the Statehouse Press Corps” by media colleagues, has covered New Jersey politics for more than three decades, and is widely considered a Trenton expert. The On the Record format offers viewers an intimate discussion between Aron and key players in local politics, business and other arenas. Past guests have included Governor Chris Christie, Senate president Steve Sweeney, and State Chief Justice Stuart Rabner, among others. Reporters Roundtable gathers news-breaking journalists to discuss headlining topics. Both programs tape at NJTV’s Statehouse Studio in Trenton.
“We wish Michael well, and have been receiving positive reports on his recovery,” said NJTV General Manager John Servidio. “We look forward to his return as soon as he is able.”
