MSU Now Adds WNYC Bureau to Its Media Campus

Last August, WNYC talk show host Brian Lehrer broadcast his regular morning show from the Kasser Theatre at Montclair State. Last weekend, he spoke at convocation for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Today, MSU is announcing that New York Public Radio, parent to WNYC and WQXR, will locate its New Jersey bureau on Montclair State’s campus.

This follows the move of NJTV’s newsroom  to MSU’s campus last November. NJTV is the successor to the old NJN, which Gov. Christie axed from the state budget last year. It hosted a live televised debate between Rep. Bill Pascrell and Rep. Steve Rothman on campus last night.

Heading up the radio bureau will be Peabody Award-winning journalist Nancy Solomon, who has reported on New Jersey for 10 years, including stories on the achievement gap in a middle-class suburb, the state’s foster care system, politics, and the redevelopment of Newark.

MSU announced a new school of Media and Communications last December.
