N.Y. Emmy® for New Jersey Monthly’s New TV Show

Call us an overnight sensation! The very first episode of New Jersey Monthly’s new TV series has won a New York Emmy® Award. Yes, we are proud.

The new series, Best Places to Live, was awarded Best Magazine Program at the 56th Annual New York Emmy® Awards Sunday night, in a ceremony at the Marriott Marquis’ Broadway Ballroom at Times Square. Angelina Vivolo Cicala, executive producer of the winning episode, accepted the award. The awards are presented annually by the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for outstanding achievement in television.

The new series, which airs on NJTV, takes viewers through some of the most interesting and appealing areas of New Jersey and documents why they are among the best places to live in the state.

The pilot episode of Best Places To Live debuted on NJTV in July 2012, and visited the New Jersey Gold Coast cities of Jersey City and Hoboken. In addition to looking at a variety of neighborhoods, sampling the local cuisine and meeting some local folks who call these communities home, the episode gives the area’s history and puts in context the roles that these cities played in the lives of immigrants who arrived from all over the world. Watch it online now.

Next stops for Best Places: Asbury Park and Long Branch, premiering on May 7 on NJTV.

The show is produced by Richard McIntosh and Alan Goldsher, the principals of Re-Invention TV in conjunction with New Jersey Monthly.

New Jersey Monthly editor Ken Schlager serves as consulting editor on the series. New York Daily News real estate editor Jason Sheftell is host.

The series is underwritten by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, K. Hovnanian Home Builders and Union Center National Bank.
