The Jersey Shore weekend has officially kicked off, as has our live broadcast from Asbury Park.

It's Friday. It's summertime. It's the Jersey Shore. Put that all together and you have the morning show's live broadcast from the New Jersey Natural Gas Asbury Park Boardwalk Studio.

If you have never experienced an early morning on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, I strongly suggest you take the time to do it. It is absolutely gorgeous in every way. The gentle waves on the beach, the sound of the sea gulls and one of the most beautiful sunrises you will ever see are just some of the reasons.

My personal favorite sunrise is when you position yourself in such a way that the sunrise is in your same view as Convention Hall. It's like Asbury Park history meets nature's beauty and it really is an awesome sight.

The people are so friendly and the sights are so amazing. There truly is no better way to kick off a Jersey Shore weekend. You will be so glad you did it at least once this summer, and I bet after you do it, you'll want to visit a few more times.

And of course, while you're here, please stop by and visit the New Jersey Natural Gas Asbury Park Boardwalk Studio, where Liz and I will be broadcasting from until 10:00am this morning.

And if this morning doesn't work for you today, remember that Matt Ryan will be here this afternoon and Gino D. will be here this weekend, so we certainly hope to see you.

Remember that Tom Hayes joins us each Friday to talk about some of the great local organizations doing their best to help our neighbors during some tough times.

We hope to see you this weekend! Enjoy the weekend!
