Chasing New Jersey’s One-Year Anniversary

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Chasing New Jersey has officially been delivering the Garden State news for one-year now and in celebration of this important anniversary some of their most popular guests stopped by the studio to talk about their favorite moments on the show.

Ringleader Bill Spadea took the time to thank the man behind the magic, Executive Producer Jerry Burke with whom the chasers credit the show’s ongoing success. Burke also thanked the staff for allowing him to pursue his dream to deliver a new form of news.

Guests included: Essex County Freeholder Brendan Gill, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlan and wife Heather O'Scanlan, therapist Dr. Chuck Williams, radio personality Dee Dee Benkie, Captain Tim Pino, Essex County Chief of Staff Philip Alagia, White Horse Strategies Joshua Henne and Republican Strategiest Jeanette Hoffman.

All the guests took the time to praise the show and what many believe to be the future of news!

“I think what Chasing New Jersey does is fantastic, it’s filling a void that we definitely need, to be talking about New Jersey news! Not just the political stuff, but beyond the political stuff, the human interest stories, the public safety stories. I’m proud to be a part of it over the last year,” Gill said.

“You are filling a void, but you’re also pioneering a style and it’s probably the future of news, I think…you cover news that no one else is gonna cover,” O’Scanlan said.

“We all know that the way news is done today is dead, this is a show that people watch and I watch it because you’re good to look at, that’s important right? You know what you’re talking about and you cover the issues that matter, and again, New Jersey’s important to this country so it’s important that we chase New Jersey,” Williams chimed in.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary everyone at the station was given a trophy.

Chasing New Jersey delivers everything from politics to human interests stories and more, that all have one thing in common, they’re all about the Garden State!
