Wildwood Tourism Authority releases statement on MTV's "Jersey Shore"

Following various rumors and word from Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano that the city denied MTV's "Jersey Shore" a license to film in public areas, the Greater Wildwood Tourism Improvement & Development Authority (GWTIDA) has released the following statement:

While the Wildwoods, NJ embraces the opportunity to provide a beautiful seaside beach and Boardwalk location for filmmakers, TV shows and social media to film here, it does not welcome the message that the MTV show "Jersey Shore" presents to its viewers. The Wildwoods' family-friendly atmosphere, beautiful award-winning beaches, Boardwalk fun and Doo Wop ambience does not align with the show's overall theme and message. Our resort destination is geared toward good clean fun for families and multi-generational vacationers who enjoy our beaches, boardwalk and one-of-a-kind attractions.

The Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement & Development Authority, on behalf of the Island's three municipal governments, the Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Wildwood Hotel-Motel Association, the Wildwood Downtown Business Improvement District and the Boardwalk Special Improvement District, are united in their opposition of the filming of MTV's "Jersey Shore" in the Wildwoods.
