6/5/2008

Trenton, NJ - The New Jersey Cable Telecommunications Association (NJCTA) and its member companies are partnering with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities to produce an hour-long panel discussion on the growing mortgage foreclosure crisis that will be televised statewide on NJCTA member cable systems in New Jersey starting in April.

“We’re pleased to join forces with the League of Municipalities to highlight this important issue,” said Elizabeth Murray, Chairwoman of the NJCTA and senior director of regulatory affairs for Comcast.  “Our cable companies all share a commitment to providing vital, local programming for New Jersey customers on issues just like this.  No other provider of news and information in the state can match our coverage.”

The panel discussion will be taped on the set of Cablevision’s popular “We’ve Got Issues” program and will be carried on both Cablevision’s local programming channels and on New 12 New Jersey’s “Power and Politics” program.  The show will also be carried by Comcast, Time Warner, US Cable, and Service Electric on their own local programming and On Demand channels.  Viewers should check their cable program guides for channels and times.

Participating in the panel are:  Adam Greenberg of the Tax Collectors and Treasurers Association, James Hughes the Dean of The Bloustein Center for Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, Robert Levy the Executive Director & Counsel for the Mortgage Bankers Association of New Jersey, Phyllis Salowe-Kaye the Executive Director of NJ Citizen Action, and Steven M. Goldman the NJ Commissioner of Banking and Insurance.

The panel will be moderated by Cablevision’s Laura Jones.

Exclusive interviews with East Orange Mayor and New Jersey League of Municipalities President Robert Bowser and Paterson Mayor Joey Torres will also be featured during the panel discussion.
