About this Weblog
Voice for New Jersey is an affiliation of individuals and organizations who are dedicated to improving broadcast media coverage in New Jersey. The organization was founded by the Alumni of Leadership New Jersey Class of 2006. Our goal is to increase media attention on New Jersey and improve the quality of the media coverage that NJ receives.
New Jersey is one of only two states that does not have a (VHF) network affiliate. Coverage of the state is divided between the New York and Philadelphia media markets. As a result, New Jersey suffers from:
> Lack of State Identity
> Little Examination of Elected Officials
> Limited Community awareness
This Weblog has been developed to serve as a working tool to help VNJ Members and Collaborating Agencies share information and communicate with one another. By exploring the links to your right, you will find background information on media regulatory agencies, pertinent legislation, and key events in the recent history of media activism.
Perhaps more importantly, this forum will allow participants to stay current with VNJ happenings and exchange ideas on how we can achieve our objectives more effectively. To provide a useful forum for these exchanges, some of these areas have been password protected. Members will be provided with password information upon registration.
We welcome your interest in this forum and look forward to the active involvement of all VNJ participants. Should you have any questions or comments, please contact your Team Leader or the VNJ Program Administrator.
