An update on the changing casino scene in Atlantic City, the Miss America shakeup and upcoming entertainment are part of the latest episode of “-30-,” The Press of Atlantic City’s television show.
Here’s the lineup for this week’s show:
• The Atlantic City casino market has seen some wild changes over the past 12 months. The Taj Mahal will become Hard Rock, Revel became Ten — then became Ocean Resort Casino. It could leave your head spinning like a roulette wheel. Max Reil sat down with The Press casino reporter Nicholas Huba to sort out all the changes and what it could mean to South Jersey.
• From Atlantic City to Cape May, the entertainment scene is blowing up. From world-class jazz musicians to major pop princesses, South Jersey is the place to be for awesome entertainment. Pamela Dollak joins At The Shore and Atlantic City Weekly Associate Editors Rebecca King and Ryan Loughlin to see what’s in store for the shore.
• The Miss America organization saw a major shakeup recently with the resignation of its CEO, Sam Haskell, after disparaging remarks he made in emails about pageant winners became public. The controversy led to seismic changes in the organization, which may be at risk of losing funding meant to keep the competition in Atlantic City. We brought together some of our reporters covering the story to talk about the present and the future of Miss America.
• Winter on the Delaware Bay is a time of intense activity, even if there are fewer visitors to the small villages that dot its coast and fishermen become landbound for a while. Press reporter Michelle Brunetti Post and photographer Dale Gerhard take us on a tour of the one-time fishing village of Fortescue, a quaint town that holds a special attraction for its die-hard residents.
Each week, “-30-” explores the stories behind the region’s major events and newsmakers. The show is produced by Press staffers working with Stockton students and airs on Stockton’s educational access channel 9.
Most residents of Atlantic County can watch channel 9 through Comcast cable. New episodes run each Thursday and are re-aired at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays and 5 p.m. Tuesdays. Segments can also be watched any time at PressofAC.com/30.
The half-hour episodes cover the same range of topics as the paper: news, lifestyle, sports and business.
