The evolution of this special show featuring successful millennials, mirror images the evolution of our TV Show, from three years ago when we began as a radio podcast, then streaming to You Tube, Long Branch Cablevision, Rutgers University TV.  Now we’re a solid cable TV program in three New Jersey counties which have 500,000 subscribers in their service area as well as Rutgers TV and You Tube TV. A half million people means relevancy and something of value programming wise.

Our mantra at NJ Discover has always been to focus on the positive upbeat factors of New Jersey living, or as our preamble states, “of, for and by the people of NJ.”  We pride ourselves on diversity of guests and content; all presented in an hour format, which means serious commitment of time and energy to New Jersey life. We recognize that traditional media, local CBS,  FOX, ABC, NBC, Channel 9, 11, 12 and CNN, can’t do the hour NJ content show, but perhaps a two-minute featured segment. We are our name; NJ Discover. We discover many aspects of the Garden State.



With our audience at Rutgers University, and their three campuses replete with millennials, and the other half million subscribers, with everyone knowing a millennial or two, a show featuring four who have succeeded in the media and business world becomes critically important and relevant. We’ll explore their journeys, studies, philosophies, advice, techniques at arrival, thought processes, future think; all of which should be of keen interest for young and old and middle agers.
