High risk for rip currents along New Jersey shore

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Hurricane Gert is churning the surf and creating a high risk for rip currents along the New Jersey shore.  Beachgoers are advised to swim near lifeguards. If caught in a rip current, they should relax and float. If possible, swim parallel to the shore in order to get free of the current. The second hurricane of the season in the Atlantic Ocean is not posing a direct threat to the Jersey shore. Gert has begun to turn northeast and forecasters say an increase in forward speed is expected through the next couple of days.

Proposal: Public Media Funding Eliminated

The FY 18 federal budget has been released and it calls for eliminating funding for the Corporation For Public Broadcasting.  Although this funding accounts for 0.01% of the federal budget it provides critical funding for over 1,400 of local public television and radio stations around the country.

23% of 90.5 The Night’s annual budget comes from CPB.  Imagine this station running 23% less of the programming you love…23% less of all this great music, 23% less interviews, 23% less DJs, 23% less traffic, weather, and local programming.

This is a true threat to what you enjoy and rely on.  We need the support of you, our listeners and members.  Help us provide 100% of what you love on the air now!

Christie, Cuomo announce new Port Authority leadership

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie and New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo have appointed new leaders for the agency that controls the region’s airports, bridges and tunnels.

Christie and Cuomo said in a statement Tuesday they have picked former GOP New Jersey state Sen. Kevin O’Toole to be chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Cuomo’s special counsel for interagency initiatives, Rick Cotton, will serve as executive director.

O’Toole succeeds John Degnan, who has served since 2014. Cotton follows Pat Foye, who became executive director in 2011.

The announcement comes after the conviction of Christie aides over a political payback scheme involving the 2013 George Washington Bridge lane closures. The Port Authority oversees the bridge. Two Christie appointees served at the agency during the scandal.
