Janine Strafaci of ShoreTV New Jersey

Anyone from the Garden State probably recognizes Janine Strafaci. Her award-winning career spans nearly twenty years, and it’s all thanks to her desire to share the stories of others.

Now she’s telling her story to #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino.

Janine is most widely recognized for her near seventeen-year career as a main news anchor for New 12 New Jersey. As the longest running female news anchor, it’s no surprise that her accolades include two Emmy Awards, nine Emmy-award nominations, an Edward R. Murrow Award and seven National Telly Awards. With the launch of ShoreTV New Jersey, Janine has now added female entrepreneur to her impressive resume.

A born and raised Jersey Girl, Janine knows the ups and downs that come with news; reporting during 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy. When she left News 12 New Jersey, she wanted a platform for all the positive, feel-good stories that make New Jersey so special. This is the inspiration for ShoreTV New Jersey – an exclusively online news outlet that focuses on all thing Jersey Shore.

It’s a place for local business owners to tell their stories, and features like “For Goodness Sake” put a spotlight on local community outreach. With recent topics like where to go for the best Jersey Shore Happy Hours and everything you need to know about Shore Beach Badges, there’s something for everyone at ShoreTV New Jersey.
