New Jersey Network
NJ PBS was originally established as New Jersey Network (NJN) in 1981.
The channel's name was shortened to NJN in 1986. In 1994, WNJM-TV changed their callsign to WNJN-TV to match the state network's initials.
The NJN television stations were/are all sold to a consortium led by New York City-based/Newark-licensed WNET (the former NJN radio stations were given to two stations, the northern half became part of the WNYC Operated New Jersey Public Radio, while the southern half became WHYY satellite stations) and it's rebranded as NJTV on July 1, 2011.
In 2017, the PBS logo was added to the logo for the first time in the channel's 46 year existence.
