Television Coverage

News12 is doing an outstanding  job covering the hurricane for New Jersey.  The major network affiliates in New York and presumably Philadelphia are doing the what they usually do….cover New Jersey as an after thought to their home cities.

News12 is only available to cable subscribers.  FIOs and satellite TV users are without comprehensive New Jersey news, which in the case of a hurricane or other disaster can be life threatening.

NJTV, the successor to NJN, is broadcasting an episode of Sid The Science Kid.

Hopefully NJN veteran Michael Aron, who has recently taken over the news operation of NJTV, will have the resources to build a bureau that provides New Jersey the news coverage it needs or will develop cooperative agreements with other outlets so that all New Jersey residents can get the news they need when they need it.

    With the exception of Aron reporting on a story, NJTV is unwatchable…..and I used to watch the 6 PM news almost every night on NJN.

    From what I gather, they do not do any NJ reporting on weekends.

    The day the Gov had to be taken to the hospital, they spend exactly 19 seconds reporting on that duirng their 6 PM newscast while FIOS 1 was at the hospital all day with constant live updates.
