The New Jersey Globe Power Hour, a weekly radio show on WABC 770, will begin airing on September 12.
New Jersey Globe editor David Wildstein will host the show, which will feature interviews and a lively discussion of New Jersey political issues and personalities.
The show will be broadcast every Saturday from 5-6 PM.
“There’s no place on earth like New Jersey, where politics produces an exciting spectacle on a daily basis. New Jersey Globe covers every level of politics, from small town municipalities to the state’s governor and congressional delegation,” said Wildstein. “It’s a privilege to share the day-to-day intrigue of America’s greatest spectator sport – New Jersey politics – with listeners of a storied radio network like 77 WABC.”
New Jersey Globe general manager Kevin Sanders will serve as producer of the New Jersey Globe Power Hour.
