Trenton, NJ – Veteran journalist Janice Selinger has been appointed executive director of Crossroads of the American Revolution Association. Crossroads is the non-profit organization responsible for the management of the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area, which connects the people and places of New Jersey’s rich Revolutionary heritage to inspire community pride, stewardship and civic engagement.
“Janice joins Crossroads at an exciting time as we lay the groundwork for New Jersey’s celebration of the 250th birthday of the United States in 2026,” said Patrick Murray, chair of the Crossroads Board of Trustees. “Her strong track record in fundraising and project management will help our partners strengthen the state’s Revolutionary War resources and increase the economic benefit to our communities through heritage tourism.”
During her tenure at New Jersey Network and its not-for-profit NJN Foundation, Selinger built substantial expertise in developing award-winning programming and securing major donor support. As a journalist, she has produced a broad range of programs and documentaries focusing on public affairs, health initiatives and history, and was involved in NJN’s Ten Crucial Days and Morristown: Where America Survived video projects.
“I’ve spent my career telling New Jersey’s stories, and I’m excited to be working with Crossroads’ partners and supporters to promote our Revolutionary heritage,” said Selinger. “With more Revolutionary War battlefields and historic sites than any other state, we have such wonderful stories to tell right in our own backyard. There’s tremendous potential to generate interest as the 250th anniversary approaches.”
