Want to know what’s happening along the Jersey shore? NewsWorks is bringing back its Down the Shore blog with two new voices. Amy Z. Quinn and Justin Auciello will be keeping you up-to-date with everything from breaking weather news, traffic gridlock to in-depth reports on the shore economy.

Amy Z. Quinn has reported for the Asbury Park Press, The Philadelphia Inquirer, PlanPhilly, and NewsWorks. A resident of Mullica Hill, N.J. she will be covering more than just the shore towns but also highlighting people places between Philadelphia and the shore points. Ms. Quinn is a social media maven. For entertaining reading you must follow her Twitter feed @AmyZQuinn.

Justin Auciello is no stranger to Jersey shore residents. He is the founder of Jersey Shore Hurricane News. In April, Auciello was honored at the White House as one of the nation’s Champion of Change, for his efforts during and after Superstorm Sandy to providing fact-checked reporting on everything from where to get food and water to routing information through his website that led to water rescues. Auciello is a resident of South Seaside Park, N.J. His Facebook page JSHN is considered a must read for shore residents.

Down the Shore got its start in Feb 2012 with Jen A. Miller, who was the perfect person to help introduce NewsWorks to shore residents. Miller is the author of The Jersey Shore: Atlantic City to Cape May. Miller left NewsWorks in April to work on her next book.
