Diversifying Southern W.Va. Jobs And Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, we heard earlier this week from the Coalfield Development Corporation, a company leading work to develop the ACT Now Coalition. Funded by the American Rescue Plan, the plan is meant to help southern West Virginia’s economy by creating clean energy and green economy jobs. The West Virginia Hive is one of the partners in the Community and Business Resilience Initiative. Jessica Lilly has more.

Also, in this show, the new fall season of Mountain Stage begins this weekend. Our Song of the Week comes from Nellie McKay, whose music incorporates many different styles, from Cabaret and Broadway to American songbook all diffused through the lens of her zany and profound interpretations of life. We listen to her song, “No Equality,” which originally appeared on her 2010 album “Home Sweet Mobile Home.”
