On this West Virginia Morning, Elaine McMillion Sheldon’s latest documentary is called “King Coal.” The imaginative film focuses on central Appalachia, how coal mining has influenced its culture and how that may be changing. Inside Appalachia host Mason Adams spoke with Sheldon and co-producer Molly Born about the film.
Also, in this show, announcer Tim Hagerty says there’s more to baseball than just the game. He’s the author of “Tales from the Dugout: 1,001 Humorous, Inspirational & Wild Anecdotes from Minor League Baseball,” which looks at sillier parts of America’s favorite pastime. Bill Lynch spoke with Hagerty about minor league ball and even baseball in West Virginia.
