Live Video Event: Jersey Media Panel Reviews the Christie Keynote

Patch joins an NJ News Commons discussion following the governor's keynote address to the Republican National Convention tonight


Gov. Christie is ready for his big moment and so are members of the NJ News Commons. Immediately following the governor's keynote address, expected to begin at about 10:30 p.m., the panel for the commons' first live Google Plus Hangout on Air, will discuss the speech and its impact on the convention and the campaign.

Joining the discussion will be:
  • John Celock,  the state politics reporter and Patch liaison for The Huffington Post. He is based in Washington, and is the author of "The Next Generation: Young Elected Officials and Their Impact on American Politics."
  • Ryan Dicovitsky, an adjunct professor of public speaking at Seton Hall and head coach of Seton Hall's debate team. 
  • Debbie Galant, the director of the NJ News Commons, founder and former co-editor of Baristanet and former Jersey columnist for The New York Times.
  • Steve Johnson, a multimedia journalism professor at Montclair State, who has worked at Patch, the AP, MSNBC and Court TV.
  • John Mooney, a founding editor of NJ Spotlight and a veteran of both the Star Ledger and the Bergen Record.
  • Fred Tuccillo, the Patch senior regional editor for Central Jersey and the Shore, and a former national editor for Newsday, where he directed coverage of several conventions.
  • Julie Winokur, independent documentary producer and the founder of Bring it to the Table, a Kickstarter-funded initiative to foster civility in political dialogue.
