Friday morning got off to a rapid start with news of an amber alert for two missing children.  The story manifested itself quickly throughout the morning.


  • An amber alert unwound into a murder, then abduction, and an apparent suicide between Old Bridge and Fort Montgomery, NY.
  • Kevin McArdle reports from the State House that a bill to impose stiffer penalties for road rage moves forward.
  • Ilya Hemlin was in Upper Freehold, where a measure was passed to block a medical marijuana growing facility.
  • Joe Cutter says that holiday retailing numbers are looking up.
  • A job’s bill is headed back to Governor Christie’s desk.
  • One State Senator says he will keep pushing a “special case” death penalty bill till it gets a vote.
  • Stacy Proebstle reports that synthetic drug use in New Jersey is on the rise.

A reminder that Monday night at 7PM is this month’s “Ask The Governor” program with Governor Chris Christie and Eric Scott.  During the broadcast there will be a live video stream and an interactive blog.  You can do all of that and submit your questions now here.
