In an effort to positively impact the daily lives of New Jerseyans, the New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF) has formed a media partnership with TAPinto, a network of over 70 franchised online local news sites throughout the state.

The NJHOF’s mission of celebrating New Jersey, inspiring generations of state residents, and instilling a sense of pride in their state closely follows TAPinto’s dedication to keeping people throughout the state abreast of important news, making the two organizations an ideal combination.

The NJHOF will promote TAPinto in its public relations, mass electronic communications, newsletters, social media channels, and annual induction ceremony, while TAPinto will publicize the NJHOF’s events and materials on participating TAPinto sites, secure coverage of its events by reporters, donate advertising space from participating sites, and promote its content on TAPinto social media channels.
