Two award-winning news outlets, NJTV News and NJ Spotlight, have joined forces as WNET acquires NJ Spotlight from the Community Foundation of New Jersey to increase and amplify local journalism in the Garden State. NJ Spotlight will partner with NJTV News to create NJ-centric, multi-platform content and one of the largest and most comprehensive public affairs organizations in the state.

NJTV and NJ Spotlight cover significant municipal and state news across the Garden State.

The acquisition and partnership creates a combined journalism force that reaches digital, broadcast, video and other platforms. NJ Spotlight’s reporters and work will appear on NJTV News’ Emmy-winning programming and social media, and reporting and video from NJTV News will supplement NJ Spotlight’s site and programs. On whatever platform you turn to for news, you’ll see collaborative work on issues like the state’s fiscal crisis and the challenges around education, healthcare, energy, and the environment.  The possibilities are endless, with innovation at the center of this new venture.
