Roxbury: About Us

Fred went on to work for The New Jersey Herald, The Times Herald-Record, The Star-Ledger, Ziff-Davis Media and other news outlets. He won several New Jersey Press Association awards, including a first-place award for spot news coverage. An article on TAPinto Roxbury won Fred an NJPA award in 2015 for feature writing.
