NJN News was a half-hour daily broadcast television news program by the New Jersey Network which also aired in New York City on WNET Monday through Friday. It was sometimes preempted on holidays by special programming.

The program began in 1978 as New Jersey Nightly News, co-produced with WNET. In 1981, NJN assumed full control of the broadcast.[1] NJN News had its final broadcast on June 30, 2011, when NJN went off the air to be replaced by NJTV.[2]

Talent included former presenter Kent Manahan, new anchor Jim Hooker, environmental reporter Ed Rodgers, science reporter Patrick Regan, health reporter Sara Lee Kessler, and general reporters Marie DeNoia Aronson, Kent Saint John and others.
