WTJX on Wednesday announced what it described as a new half-hour “public affairs series” dubbed “The Washington Report with Stacey Plaskett”, a show the territory’s Public Broadcasting System said will air bi-monthly.

“Judging from the first show that I previewed, this program will be of great interest to the territory’s residents,” Mrs. Singh added.

Ms. Plaskett said the show was created to educate and inform her congressional district on current issues that directly affect the Virgin Islands community. Guests will range from political leaders to community activists. This week’s first guest will be Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon, Ms. Plaskett said.
