Yesterday, the New Jersey General Assembly honored the television program “Chasing New Jersey,” with an assembly resolution paying homage to its recent airing of its two-hundredth broadcast. Citing their dedication to covering public events and breaking stories across the Garden State, in a fair and balanced manner while providing entertainment with its journalistic integrity.
If you are not familiar with “Chasing New Jersey,” it is the 30-minute informal news program, focusing on New Jersey. “Chasing” airs weekdays on WWOR My9 (10-10:30 p.m.) and on WTXF FOX 29 at 12:30 a.m, New Jersey seems to have been stuck in between the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas and highly influenced by the news and events of those states. With the concept of a New Jersey news outlet, residents are now able to focus on the events of their own state.
Following a similar format of TMZ, each night, the moderator of the program takes viewers on a ride across the state of New Jersey as the excellent crew of “Chasers” cover their beat with stories that are placing New Jersey firmly in the national headlines.
Originating from Trenton, the political nerve center, “Chasing” covers a range of topics and issues, including interviews with local politicians, law enforcement officials and citizens on a variety of issues affecting New Jersey communities. The chasers have covered topics from the homeless in tent city, conditions of the roads in the state, joblessness, to the recent events of Bridgegate.
Created by Dennis Bianchi, Vice President, Fairfax Productions and Vice President and General Manager, WTXF FOX 29 Philadelphia, “Chasing New Jersey” is produced by Fairfax Productions.
With the Ringleader Bill Spadea, he heads a cast of his chasers who cover the news from all directions and topics of interest, all under the effective leadership of Executive Producer Jerry Burke Director Mike LaMarca.
