Last Sunday night I had the honor and privilege to host the annual New Jersey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at The Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park. The sold out evening was filled with people that make this great state so special.

It’s pretty cool to see the celebrities and meet those who are proud to be from New Jersey that accomplished so much. There were actors, musicians, media personalities, world renown sports stars, authors, activists and business leaders. All of them with ties to New Jersey.

It was a blast to see music legend Tommy James and Wycleff Jean jamming on stage, seeing Steve Van Zandt induct Tommy, or Kelly Rippa’s father with a great introduction to his daughter Kelly... Maury Povich inducting his wife Connie Chung and all the inductees all proud to be New Jersey.

Here are a few pictures with more to come. I never thought I could be more proud to be New Jersey, Sunday night did that for me.
