Iam Samuel and Robin Roberts of Good Morning America

Great news to share with you all tonight! St. John is going to be featured on Good Morning America tomorrow morning … how exciting is that??!!

For those of you who follow us over on our Facebook page, you may have seen the post we shared from Robin Roberts Saturday morning. Robin was over in St. Thomas and posted a rainbow pic just moments before she hopped on a boat to St. John.

We caught up with Ian Samuel briefly this evening, and he told us how he had the privilege of giving Robin a tour of our island Saturday. He also said how she stopped by his home later in the day. (Ian is also a member of the Bloomberg USVI Recovery team.)

It’s so nice to see St. John getting the media coverage it deserves. And while some areas of the island have had power restored, there are still many who are on day 68 without power.

The segment is scheduled to air tomorrow, November 13th between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. EST on ABC. If someone is able to capture the video, we’d love for you to email us the clip to jenn@newsofstjohn.com. We still do not have cable down here, so thank you in advance if you’re able to. :)

    Nice piece

    So, what is the “expected” power restoration on the island after Crus Bay? Where are they restoring and estimated dates by are?

    I’m thankful for the attention St. John has received! This beautiful island, despite the devastation, seems greener than I’ve ever seen it. The people who live here are amazing and it shows!

    I DVR’d the entire show but was able to catch part of it before I left work this morning. It was a beautiful segment and Ian is amazing. If I can figure out how to send it to you I certainly will. Here’s to the continued progress on island!!!
