On Wednesday, July 8, at 7 p.m., Townsquare Media’s “New Jersey 101.5” (WKXW-FM) is presenting the latest in a series of Town Hall broadcasts to help New Jersey residents and businesses dealing with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Any one interested in listening online can go to Listen Live button at www.nj1015.com, or can follow on Facebook here.

Nearly 40% of New Jersey business owners are depleting their personal savings to survive pandemic closures, according to a survey by the New Jersey Business & Industry Association. Even as segments of the economy reopen, two-thirds of businesses are losing revenue. New Jersey 101.5’s Eric Scott leads the news and digital departments in highlighting their struggles and efforts to survive in a new economy.

“Businesses are still hurting and we will connect them with the help they need,” Scott said. “But we also want to celebrate their unique innovations that are allowing them to operate in these challenging times.”

The program’s on-air expert panel will feature: Michele Siekerka, President & CEO, New Jersey Business & Industry Association; Marilou Halvorsen, President & CEO, New Jersey Restaurant & Hospitality Association; Kristin Fitzgerald, Communications Manager, Six Flags Great Adventure; and Dr. Ronald Nahass, epidemiologist, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. Scott and his guests will answer live, call-in questions from listeners throughout the hour.

Online, the Town Hall will be streamed on Facebook Live at Facebook.com/NJ1015, where business and medical experts will field questions from audience members in the accompanying live chat. The broadcast may also be accessed via NJ1015.com, the New Jersey 101.5 YouTube channel, or the free New Jersey 101.5 app.
