Can a Video Game Bring Visitors to West Virginia?

Feb 21, 2019

On this West Virginia Morning, Roxy Todd talks with Stephanie Tyree, director of the West Virginia Community Development Hub.

The Hub is a non-profit based in Charleston that's trying to strengthen economic development efforts across the state. Its approach is based on years of research into why, despite substantial investments and community efforts, West Virginia communities continue to struggle - and why the state continues to rank at the bottom of so many quality-of-life measurements.

Also on today’s show, we’ll take a look at a video game that tourism officials believe will make a positive impact in getting visitors to West Virginia.
