Patti Smith And Handling Tourism Growth On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the tourism industry is a growing part of West Virginia’s economy, but what happens to the towns that are now the destination for out-of-state visitors? Also, in this show, we have an update on a former West Virginia lawmaker who was involved in the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and we listen to this week’s Mountain Stage Song of the Week, brought to us by Patti Smith.
