WNJN, also known as NJTV is a network of four PBS stations.

HistoryEdit

Officials with the New Jersey Network asked the New Jersey Legislature in 2008 for permission to explore making NJN a community licensee owned by its fundraising arm, the NJN Foundation. However, on June 6, 2011, Governor Chris Christie, who vowed to end state-funded public broadcasting when he took office in 2010, announced an agreement to turn control of the NJN television network to WNET. As part of the deal, WNET.org created Public Media NJ as a separate New Jersey-based nonprofit to operate the stations.

Under the terms of the deal, Public Media NJ would operate the stations for a five-year period, with two additional five-year renewable options. The NJPBA would retain the licenses, while Public Media NJ would receive funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and all revenues related to the former NJN technical operations. The measure was defeated by the state assembly on June 23, 2011. The state senate, however, passed the resolution on June 27, allowing Public Media NJ to take over NJN's television operations as scheduled on July 1, 2011. All members of NJN automatically became members of NJTV. The first program to be aired on NJTV was Charlie Rose (which is produced by its sister station WNET).

On July 26, 2011, NJTV announced a partnership with the Foundation for New Jersey Public Broadcasting (formerly the NJN Foundation) to jointly fund and create additional public affairs programming. NJTV and the NJN Foundation merged in September 2012.
