Changes At WVU And A Discussion About Distrust On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, students at West Virginia University (WVU) will begin to see changes this week following the decision Friday by university officials to eliminate 28 majors and more than 140 faculty positions. We have the latest.

Also, in this show, the Allegheny Front, a public radio program based in Pittsburgh that reports on environmental issues in the region, shares their latest story about an updated book about the Youghiogheny River that starts in West Virginia and heads north through Pennsylvania.

And, distrust in our institutions, organizations and even in each other has reached new highs. Some people refuse to believe the science behind vaccinations or fact-based reporting on political elections. Coming up later this week, Us & Them host Trey Kay moderates an evening of conversation about our lack of trust. One of his guests is Raney Aronson-Rath. She’s editor in chief of the PBS investigative journalism series Frontline. 

West Virginia Morning is a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting which is solely responsible for its content.

Support for our news bureaus comes from Concord University and Shepherd University.
