ShoreTV New Jersey, www.shoretvnj.com, celebrates with its 2015 Summer Launch Party!
ShoreTV NJ is an online lifestyle site promoting the positive people, places, businesses and organizations in and around the Jersey Shore—the places that make this area a special place to live and visit– the places that you want to check out.
The site is founded by two time Emmy Award winning news anchor and proud Jersey Girl Janine Strafaci.
A crowd of about 200 people gathered at Watermark in Asbury Park overlooking the ocean to toast ShoreTV NJ’s place as a must-view media site focusing on the area in and around the Jersey Shore.
Party guests included NJ’s Acting Director of Tourism Anthony Minnick, Monmouth County’s Tourism Director Jeanne DeYoung, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon, Freeholder Lillian Burry and Ron Morano, the NJ spokesperson for JCP&L, which is one of ShoreTV NJ’s biggest supporters.
ShoreTV New Jersey believes in supporting the community. In honor of its 2015 Summer Launch Party, they adopted the Jersey Shore charitable organization Daniela’s Wish. They bring smiles to children’s faces by granting wishes to children in need and by bringing toys, books and gift cards to pediatric patients in Jersey Shore area hospitals. ShoreTV NJ is proud to say to celebrate their launch, the web site’s supporters and fans donated 135 toys and books AND nearly $4,000 in cash and gift cards to brighten the days of children going through tough times in our communities.
ShoreTV NJ feature news-style videos done by award winning professionals in the news business. The online media outlet takes a hyper-local approach to doing video web-based features on businesses and organizations looking to share their stories and bring them to you. The foundation is all about showcasing what is positive about the area in which we live. ShoreTV New Jersey is building an online community around that.
Founder Janine Strafaci says, “I can’t tell you how many people stop me and say—oh, you’re the news lady, I’m so tired of hearing all the negative news out there. I want to learn about the positive things happening in my community.”
Strafaci says she sees how her more than 20 year news career has evolved—and how her interaction with viewers as a news anchor on TV was equally as important as her interaction with them online through social media.
