A monthly, one-hour, live call-in program focusing on social, economic and political topics pertaining to Newark.
On this month's edition of Newark Today we talk with Mayor Ras J. Baraka and newly appointed Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose about the recent changes in the Newark Police Department and their plans to fight crime and gun violence in Newark.
Kejal Vyas is the regional correspondent in South America for The Wall Street Journal. He recently moved to Bogota, Colombia, after spending five years in Caracas, a city considered the most violent in the world. He explains in detail how he survived in a place where people drive through stop lights to avoid being held up, where police are killed for their weapons and residents are urged to stay in their homes after seven at night, even in upscale neighborhoods.
