The governor’s appearance on the live one-hour call-in show is expected to draw wider-than-usual attention because of developments in the Bridgegate scandal since the last broadcast, Dec. 23, including Friday’s allegations from former Port Authority official David Wildstein, challenging the accuracy of the Christie’s statements on the matter.

The popular program features caller questions and the governor’s responses on a wide range of local and state issues. Listeners and visitors to are also invited to suggest questions in advance.

Submit a Question

The governor’s Dec. 23 response to a question about the controversial September lane closings at the George Washington Bridge can be viewed below. They were his last broadcast comments on the matter before a Jan. 7 release of emails showed his deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly and former Port Authority official David Wildstein exchanging an apparent signal to begin the operation.

Christie, in a Jan. 8 press conference, announced Kelly’s firing, saying she had “lied” to him about the lane closings and stated he had no prior knowledge of the newly-released emails or the involvement of Kelly or other key aides in the matter until Jan. 7.

In recent weeks, a second controversy and new investigations have arisen around allegations from Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer that the Christie administration threatened to withhold Superstorm Sandy recovery aid from her city unless she facilitated approval of a development project favored by the governor. The administration has issued vigorous and detailed denials of Zimmer’s accusations.

Here is video of the governor’s Dec. 23 Bridgegate comments:
