Who We Are

NJ Spotlight is an award-winning editorial website that delivers news and analysis about politics and public policy in New Jersey.

We were founded to fill the vacuum created when the business model for conventional journalism collapsed. Our goal: Deliver impartial, in-depth coverage of the State House, as well as the budget, education, energy, and environment — along with other statewide topics.

Among its many awards and accolades, NJ Spotlight has been named the best independent online publication by the New Jersey Society for Professional Journalists. The Online News Association singled us out for general excellence in online journalism. We’ve also earned an Edward R. Murrow award from the Radio Television Digital News Association for an online news organization. And the League of Women Voters of New Jersey presented us with the “Making Democracy Work” award for “outstanding work and dedication serving the community.”

NJ Spotlight delivers insight and information on issues critical to New Jersey. We are fiercely nonpartisan, independent, policy-centered, and community-minded.
