Documentary Explores Slogan Evolution And WVU Students Protest Proposed Cuts, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, students at West Virginia University in Morgantown protested the school’s proposed program cuts on Monday. Chris Schulz has more.

Also, in this show, slogans like “the city that never sleeps” or “the gateway to the west” can help give a community identity, but cities change over time. Filmmakers Amanda Page and David Bernabo explore change and slogans in Portsmouth, Ohio with their documentary “Peerless City.” Bill Lynch spoke with them about the film.
