NJ.com is a digital news content provider and website in New Jersey. According to a report in the New York Times in 2012, it was the largest provider of digital news in the state at the time.[1]

NJ.com provides content for numerous publications including The Star-Ledger, The Times of Trenton, The Jersey Journal,[2] South Jersey Times,The Hunterdon County Democrat, The Messenger-Gazette, The Warren Reporter, Independent Press, Suburban News, and Cranford Chronicle. It is owned by Advance Digital, an organization which owns twelve newspapers in the state.[1] The site is operated by New Jersey On-Line LLC[1] and was ranked by Alexa as 2,712th worldwide and 661st in the United States in May 2016.[3] NJ.com's news reports are widely quoted by other news publications such as the New York Daily News,[4] the Chicago Tribune,[5] the Washington Post,[6] and other news organizations around the nation.

NJ.com is part of a general trend away from printed newspapers towards digital content; a report in USA Today in 2012 suggested that many newspaper readers were moving to digital websites such as NJ.com for local news.[7] In 2012, its president was Matt Kraner.[1] In 2016, its editors called on acting governor Chris Christie to resign from office, after a failed presidential campaign and Christie's controversial endorsement of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.[8] Advance Media is owned by the Newhouse family.[9] According to a report in 2014, NJ.com was laying off some employees, although there were reports that staffing losses were being offset by hiring at NJ Advance Media.[9]
