Jail Reform And Broken Broadband Promises


On this West Virginia Morning, we bring you updates on education and COVID-19 news. Then, a sit down with reporter Emily Allen all about the state’s overcrowded jails and what lawmakers have proposed to fix the issue. Our final story comes from a recent episode of Us & Them when host Trey Kay visits Pocohantas County, a place that can hear Mars but doesn’t have reliable broadband.
