On this West Virginia Week, U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., announced Thursday he will not seek reelection to the United States Senate.

Also this week, state agencies partnered with the FBI to conduct antisemitism training for law enforcement, a settlement in a lawsuit alleging inhumane jailhouse treatment is pending, Breeze Airways has added a new route to its service from West Virginia’s Charleston International Yeager Airport, and the West Virginia Board of Education issued a state of emergency for Special Education Services in Hampshire County Schools.

Finally, thousands gathered at the state Capitol to see the West Virginia tree that’s going to the U.S. Capitol for Christmas, and WVPB will premiere its newest documentary about the late Hershel “Woody” Williams this weekend.

Randy Yohe is our host this week. Our theme music is by Matt Jackfert.
