A Big Night for Christie, and a First
Collaborative Effort for the NJ News Commons
Gov. Christie has been rehearsing for his big moment, and so has NJ News Commons. Last night, the panel for the NJ News Commons' first live Google Plus Hangout on Air, got together online to see what it was like to pull seven people together on Google Plus to create a talk show.
It will be available live on YouTube, and also afterwards. Here are the participants:
John Celock, the state politics reporter and Patch liaison for The Huffington Post. He is based in Washington, and is the author of "The Next Generation: Young Elected Officials and Their Impact on American Politics."
Ryan Dicovitsky, an adjunct professor of public speaking at Seton Hall and head coach of Seton Hall's debate team.
Debbie Galant, the director of the NJ News Commons, founder and former co-editor of Baristanet and former Jersey columnist for The New York Times.
Steve Johnson, a multimedia journalism professor at Montclair State, who has worked at Patch, the AP, MSNBC and Court TV.
John Mooney, a founding editor of NJ Spotlight and a veteran of both the Star Ledger and the Bergen Record.
Fred Tuccillo, the Patch senior regional editor for Central Jersey and the Shore, and a former national editor for Newsday, where he directed coverage of several conventions.
Julie Winokur, independent documentary producer and the founder of Bring it to the Table, a Kickstarter-funded initiative to foster civility in political dialogue. Although she's based in Montclair, she will join us from Tampa.
