New Jersey's NJN: April 5, 1971 to June 30, 2011

The last show on June 30, beginning at 11:30pm on June 30, was Theater Talk (seemingly a recycle from earlier). Jacques Le Sourd, UofChicago, was a guest on the show. There was a filler show at 11:55pm on Supawna Meadows. Then, Janice Selinger spoke about NJN delivering a bountiful harvest. There was a big "thank you" from NJN posted on the screen. Then a clip for NJTV,, as the guard changed at midnight. Channels 52.2 and 52.3 ended at midnight.


Of Theater Talk, Jacques said of Chris Rock's show that he had a problem with "what's it about," but seemed to like it at some level. Michael Riedel also commented.

Other quotes from the show: the most wonderful thing a critic can say, I was wrong. Of Jerusalem: Romantic twaddle. It's so 1928.

In the news slot from 11 to 11:30, there were retrospectives from various newspeople, including Sarah Lee Kessler. There was a wicked video of Guv Christie saying how useful NJN was.
