As you may or may not know, over the past year, there have been many changes here at WMGM-TV NBC40.
In 2013, NBC decided that they no longer wanted to have a separate affiliate in South Jersey. Effective January 1st, WMGM-TV will no longer be an NBC affiliate. Additionally, the station was sold last year. In the meantime Access.1 Communications has been continuing to manage the station and will do so until December 31st of this year.
Here is the good news – while Access.1 will not be operating the WMGM-TV channel, the company has taken steps to continue and expand our news product on a new broadcast channel. This plan calls for our new company to be comprised of our current news, sales, management, and administration teams and would expand to nine counties in southern New Jersey, filling a much needed void for news, weather and sports coverage here in South Jersey.
If all goes as planned, we hope to once again be serving the area with a bigger and better newscast in the spring or early summer of 2015, so stay tuned.
