TRENTON - Workers at New Jersey's state-owned television network are getting ready to sign off for good.

New York's largest public broadcasting station has secured a deal to takeover NJN after an attempt to block it failed. WNET-TV will take over the station on July 1.

Emotions are somber among the station's 130 employees that have all been told, they're out of a job.

Many of the employees tell News 12 New Jersey they are still uncertain about what they'll do next. Some say they will file for unemployment, while those who've been on staff for at least 25 years can retire with a full pension.

When NJN signs off, remember News 12 New Jersey, your local news leader, will still be here with complete coverage of news Around New Jersey, Around the clock.
