A new episode of The Press of Atlantic City’s television show, “-30-,” will air at 7:30 p.m. Thursday on Stockton University’s channel. Here’s the lineup:

• Atlantic City developer Glenn Straub talks about his plans for Revel, Showboat, the Atlantic City Convention Center and Bader field, along with the many obstacles he says he’s facing in his attempts to create new things in the resort.

• A father and daughter team up for a new play at the Eagle Theatre in Hammonton. At The Shore Editor Pamela Dollak sits down with local playwright Kelly McCarthy, who has written a play that stars her father, Tom McCarthy, a veteran actor who has appeared in shows like “Law and Order” and “Homicide: Life on the Street.”

• The New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville has become the auto racing mecca of the East Coast. Staff Writer Thomas Barlas interviews the owner of the track to talk about how it’s grown and its Disney-like plans for the future.

• Speaking of auto racing, Sports Editor Mark Melhorn takes you on the ride of your life when he shows you what it’s like to fly around a track at 100 mph from the inside of a Red Bull rally car during the recent race at Bader Field in Atlantic City.

Each week, “-30-” will explore the stories behind the region’s major events and newsmakers. The show is produced by Press staffers, working with Stockton students.

The show will air on Stockton’s public access channel 9. Most residents of Atlantic County can watch channel 9 through Comcast cable, and segments can be watched anytime at PressofAC.com/30.

New episodes run each Thursday and are re-aired at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays and 5 p.m. Tuesdays.

The half-hour episodes will cover the same range of topics as the paper: news, lifestyle, sports and business.
