Thousands of West Virginians begin their workdays with The Morning News. Veteran anchors Chris Lawrence and Shauna Johnson present crisp and current headlines on breaking news and events of the day from 6:06am until 9:00am. Listeners are informed with fresh news, weather, and sports on a 20-minute cycle.

Additionally, The Morning News features more than the latest headlines. The program includes various in-depth features like the MetroNews Backgrounder, an hourly extended look at a major news story of the day. MetroNews Talkline host Hoppy Kercheval delivers a daily commentary with his unique take on the events of the day. “Cadillac” Jim Stallings keeps listeners in tune with pop culture with his exclusive MetroNews Entertainment Report.

Seasonal coverage delves into insider news from the capitol during the Legislative Session in Charleston, comprehensive sports coverage from the locker rooms of the Mountaineers, Thundering Herd, and high schools across the state, and up to the minute school closing or delay information in times of inclement weather.

The Morning News is a unique opportunity for listeners to keep up with not only the news happening in their local area, but also the stories that bind us all from the State Capitol in Charleston and across the nation and world.
