Toms River is a great town and I love being located right here in Downtown Toms River, with our Townsquare Media Studios located at 8 Robbins Street. It's great being right in the Downtown district. There is always a lot of activity and the Downtown district continues to evolve and grow. It's great to see Downtown Toms River coming back to life... following the pandemic.
