Jordan Knight on NECN

Jordan talks about where he was when he first heard about the Boston Marathon attack and how he felt about it in this interview with NECN:

Here is the article that was with the video: 

Many celebrities who hail from Massachusetts have been recently speaking out about the marathon bombings and showing their support for the victims. We caught up with Jordan Knight.

Here's what he had to say about that day and his beloved city of Boston:

“I was actually sleeping in and actually my wife called me and said put it on the news. And I said, how come - I'm lying in bed.’ And she said, ‘seriously. It's something going on with the Boston Marathon.’ And I turned on the news and saw that there was an explosion, and I was like there was an explosion at the finish line - oh my goodness!

I was on the plane the night before talking to Joe McIntyre. He was running in the marathon. I was like oh my goodness, I hope Joe's ok. So I looked on Twitter and I saw that he wrote there was an explosion, I finished, I'm ok. I retweeted his tweet.

It was sad when I saw it and it was frightening and all we can really do is fight against.

It packs a good punch - Boston does. I was kind of feeling like we will get through it, you know, Boston will get through it because we stick together. But to see the outpouring from the rest of the country and the rest of the world, that was very heart-warming, to see that kind of support and love.”

Later this week, we'll bring you more from our sit down interview with Jordan Knight, as he and New Kids on the Block gear up for their upcoming tour.
