Black writing on a yellow background

On this West Virginia Week, the U.S. Department of Education is launching a multimillion-dollar program to help boost the completion of FAFSA nationwide. We’ll also learn more about the state’s largest methamphetamine seizure in history. And we’ll hear about a rupture in the Mountain Valley Pipeline during a pressure test. 

We’ll talk about a state of emergency declared at an Eastern Panhandle middle school and what led to the declaration. We’ll dive into what Gov. Jim Justice says will be top priorities during the upcoming special session. And we’ll learn about a tornado that touched down in Hancock County Tuesday night.

Emily Rice is our host this week. Our theme music is by Matt Jackfert.

West Virginia Week is a web-only podcast that explores the week’s biggest news in the Mountain State. It’s produced with help from Bill Lynch, Briana Heaney, Chris Schulz, Curtis Tate, Emily Rice, Eric Douglas, Jack Walker, Liz McCormick and Randy Yohe.
