Celebrating over 25 years on air, Caucus: New Jersey with Steve Adubato is the CEC’s Emmy Award-winning series that combines in-depth documentary coverage with insightful studio interviews and panel discussions. The series tackles a range of NJ-centric issues including finances, business, education, family, healthcare and wellness, cutting edge technology and more.

The panels are made up of experts and others who have been touched by a particular topic. For example, a new medical procedure program may feature a physician who performs the procedure, a patient who received the procedure, a physical therapist who was brought in after the procedure and a health insurance agent who supports the procedure.

By looking at a particular topic from all angles, we get a more realistic, comprehensive look at the subject with candid, multi-faceted conversation.
