NJTV Board approves merger with Foundation for NJ Public Broadcasting

The nonprofit board that operates NJTV is merging with the fundraising Foundation for New Jersey Public Broadcasting, reports the Star-Ledger. The move comes nearly a year after the state government closed its New Jersey Network and outsourced the state's pubTV service to Public Media New Jersey, a subsidiary of WNET in New York (Current, June 13, 2011).

WNET spokesperson Kellie Specter told NJBiz that two administrative positions at PMNJ will be eliminated. Steve Priolo, foundation president, will be employed by WNET as an underwriting rep for NJTV, and NJ Today host Michael Aron will become an employee of PMNJ.
