An announcement from WBGO, WNYC and WHYY concerning the Ask Governor Murphy program:
Tonight’s edition of Ask Governor Murphy, a statewide, bimonthly program designed to give New Jersey residents an opportunity to talk to Governor Phil Murphy about their concerns, has been cancelled.
Governor Murphy’s office made this decision after WBGO, WHYY and WNYC — the public radio stations that serve New Jersey and are co-producers of the program — declined a request to remove a reporter from a panel that would be asking the governor questions during one segment.
Editorial independence is critical to our mission and the success of such a program. We regret the inconvenience to our listeners.
