New Jersey lawmakers are mulling ways to save public broadcaster New Jersey Network, as Gov. Chris Christie is proposing to cut its $11 million subsidy, reports the Star-Ledger.

Some of the ideas include selling the licenses to an existing broadcaster, such as New York City’s WNET or WNYC radio, the story says. "We all agree what we’re doing now isn’t working," said Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-Camden).

He added that "there is disaster on the horizon." The 10-member committee will meet twice more before issuing its findings to Christie and the state Legislature by Oct. 15, the story says.
