On The Record spotlights New Jersey’s political newsmakers—how they voted, what they’re trying to accomplish, what their values are, and where they come from figuratively and literally. Over the past 30 years, Aron has interviewed every governor, legislative leader, and most retired state Supreme Court justices in New Jersey. Some weeks the program focuses on a leader—his or her career, accomplishments, and aspirations. Other weeks it takes apart an issue with advocates and experts representing two or more sides. Sitting governors periodically appear to defend their records and promote their initiatives.
Where Reporters Roundtable cuts through the spin, On The Record offers the opportunity to spin, with viewers sitting at home in judgment. Recent guests have included Governor Chris Christie, Senate President Steve Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, former Governor Dick Codey, and Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno.
