I’ve been a broadcaster and creator of content since I was 14, but there has never been a more exciting time for our industry. In digital and social media spaces we are able to break through the boundaries of over-the-air broadcast signals, and extend into markets that were previously unreachable. As the Senior Political Director for New Jersey 101.5, I help you understand the complicated world of New Jersey politics. With almost 30 years of covering the state's political scene, I offer insight and perspective and help you understand what it all means for you and your family. You can hear me on-air as I deliver the morning news broadcasts on the Bill Spadea show. I also produce and host our Town Hall series of programs that explore critical issues facing the residents of New Jersey. I am honored to have received three Edward R. Murrow awards for my broadcasts.
