On this West Virginia Morning, West Virginia Public Broadcasting reporter Molly Born and Charleston Gazette-Mail reporter Caity Coyne have been working on a series of stories about water infrastructure issues in the southern coalfields. They’re both fellows with Report for America, an initiative that aims to strengthen local journalism.

This week they’ll publish some of their stories along with the Lexington Herald-Leader. West Virginia Public Broadcasting news director Jesse Wright spoke with them in studio about the project, called Stirring the Waters.
