WVPB Radio Announces Program Changes

West Virginia Public Broadcasting is committed to serving the greatest number of listeners possible, across our state and beyond. With this in mind, we are delighted to announce a few additions to our radio programming line-up effective July 1, 2016:

  • The BBC World Service will replace the Classical 24 and Jazz After Hours overnight services.
  • Local Classical Music will increase, with hosts Matt Jackfert and Frank Stowers from noon to 2 p.m. weekdays.
  • The Takeaway (a mid-day news magazine hosted by John Hockenberry) will air at 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Across the Blue Ridge (a regional music program hosted by former NPR reporter, Paul Brown) will air at 9 p.m. Sundays.

In addition to providing the highest quality programming available, these changes will enable us to save money in light of the recent state budget cuts. The result is increased efficiency across our entire agency.

Additionally, we find ourselves relying more and more on listener support, for which we remain ever so grateful. Neither of these is mutually exclusive. In fact, they work in tandem as we seek to be tremendous stewards with what we’ve been entrusted. 

So from all of us here, THANK YOU, for the opportunity to serve you to the best of our ability.

Additional questions and answers are posted in our FAQs.
