KNOXVILLE – An American basic cable and satellite television channel owned by Scripps Networks Interactive is premiering an episode of “Caribbean Life” that features St. Croix today.

Home & Garden Television (HGTV) Season Four premiere will follow Bruce and Melissa White’s family as it leaves the U.S. mainland behind for a house in St. Croix.

“Bruce and Melissa are proud West Virginians who are in love with travel and the Caribbean,” HGTV said in a promo. “They and their three selfie-obsessed kids, Savannah, Sheridan and Nick, are excited to buy a family home where the sun shines 365 days a year and it’s a constant 88 degrees.”

The HGTV episode will be broadcast today at 3 p.m. and features Sotheby’s International Realty USVI’s Kerri Hanley of Chris Hanley Real Estate.

The show featuring the West Virginia family is the third of this season.

“Outdoorsy and fun-loving, this family is keen to sail, swim and snorkel as much as they can once they buy a home on St. Croix,” HGTV said. “With help from superstar broker, Kerri Hanley, it won’t be long before they’re soaking up the sunshine from their very own island retreat.”

Hanley herself is originally from West Virginia. Her husband Chris was born on St. Croix.

HGTV broadcasts a variety of how-to shows with a focus on home improvement, gardening, craft and remodeling.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
