Veteran chief political correspondent Michael Aron of NJTV is on television this weekend with two programs focused on the Bridgegate scandal. Aron was at the federal courthouse in Newark on Monday when Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly pleaded not guilty to conspiring with David Wildstein to close lanes as political punishment to Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich.
Reporters Roundtable features Kate Zernike of the New York Times, John Reitmeyer of NJSpotlight.com, Mike Catalini of the Associated Press, and David Voreacos of Bloomberg News on Bridgegate fallout, Christie’s presidential standing, and the ongoing fight over pensions.
On The Record features criminal defense lawyer Joseph Hayden, Bergen Record reporter Shawn Boberg, and Monmouth University poll director Patrick Murray on what we’ve learned about Bridgegate in the past week and where the story goes from here.
Reporters Roundtable will run at 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday, followed directly by On the Record at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
