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.

“Their ability to bring in linemen and women from other utilities and other workers to bolster from other states. I think JCP&L has said that they have activated 800 people to come in and god knows we certainly hope that is sufficient.”

The Governor says the state has enough personnel and equipment to clear snow from the roads.
