Train Crew Sizes And A Morgantown Comedy Festival On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, some railroads want to cut train crew sizes from two people to one. A former CSX engineer and union official spoke with Curtis Tate about efforts in Washington to prevent that.

Also, in this show, a weekend of comedy kicks off Thursday in Morgantown. Now in its second year, the Red Eye Comedy Festival is not only highlighting the state’s nascent comedy community, but also attracting national talent to the region. Reporter Chris Schulz sat down with festival organizer Cody Cannon to discuss the event.
