NJ Governor Chris Christie announced a deal on Monday that would transfer operations of the state-owned New Jersey Network to NY’s WNET-TV. The station will be renamed NJTV and will continue to provide a nightly news broadcast and 20 hours of weekly NJ-centric broadcasting. In addition, four NJN’s radio stations will be acquired by New York Public Radio for $2.8 million and will be merged into one public radio station focused on NJ news. The other five stations will be sold to Philadelphia’s WHYY for $1.5 million.
