Hospital Strike Ends, Brush Fire Grows And A Legendary Musical W.Va. Family On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, we learn about one of West Virginia’s legendary musical families, the Kessingers. Also, in this show, a brush fire in the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve has grown, and hospital workers in Huntington have ended their month-long strike.

Also, at his regular coronavirus press briefing, Gov. Jim Justice revealed he might have been exposed to COVID-19.

We also have this week’s Mountain Stage Song of the Week. It comes from North Mississippi Allstars’ newest album Set Sail, which will be available in January on New West Records.
