Fentanyl Legislation, Latest COVID Variant And Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, we hear news updates on legislation addressing the deadly opioid fentanyl, and we learn about the BA.2 variant of COVID-19, which accounts for most new COVID-19 cases in the U.S., but not in West Virginia.

Finally, songwriter Kyshona has our Mountain Stage Song of the Week titled, “Cleft of the Rock.”
