An effort by the federal government to free up bandwidth currently being used by TV stations to meet the increasing demand for capacity among wireless users could provide a much-needed cash infusion for New Jersey’s government. That’s because the state owns four public-television stations and may be able to sell at least some of their airwaves in an auction that’s scheduled to start later this month.

NJ Spotlight’s John Reitmeyer discussed the upcoming broadcast-spectrum auction and other related issues with Dave Heller of WHYY’s NewsWorks Tonight. WHYY is a content partner of NJ Spotlight.
