A Letter From Our News Team

Back in March, 2019 NJTV News and NJ Spotlight—both trusted, member-supported, award-winning independent news sources in New Jersey—were brought together to create a new, multi-platform approach to local, in-depth journalism in the state.

Since then, we have worked hard to combine our talents and resources to create a unified, unparalleled public affairs newsroom with impactful stories and civil discourse for and about New Jersey. To that end, we proudly announce a new, singular news brand that unites both teams: NJ Spotlight News. While the name may be new, our dedication to cover the critical issues you care about including education, healthcare and the environment remains, and the trusted, robust political coverage you have come to expect continues.

During this current relentless period of uncertainty, a place for safe, reliable, trustworthy news and information has never been greater.

NJ Spotlight News is here–and will continue to be here– serving our community and lighting a path to a better informed  New Jersey.
