May 13, 2013

This Thursday, May 16th, NJTV will broadcast what it calls “a special, [two-hour] multi-platform live Town Hall event.”

Superstorm Sandy: A Live Town Hall will air at 8:00pm on NJTV as well as WLIW21 on Long Island, WHYY TV in Philadelphia, and THIRTEEN in New York City.

The Community Foundation of New Jersey is a sponsor of the program through its New Jersey Recovery Fund.

According to NJTV:

More than six months after Superstorm Sandy caused $50 billion in damage, questions still remain regarding the region’s infrastructure, its disaster response capabilities, and what the future holds. Seeking answers and conversation about the storm and recovery efforts, New Jersey and New York public television stations are teaming up to broadcast a special multi-platform live Town Hall event. Hosted by Mike Schneider, managing editor of the NJTV news program NJ Today with Mike Schneider, expert panelists will field questions before live studio audiences at Monmouth University’s Pollak Theatre in West Long Branch, NJ, and the Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center in Manhattan […].

Tickets for the live audience are available at SandyTownHall.org.  Individuals may also send questions via Twitter using the hashtag, #sandytownhall.
