HUNTINGTON -- SuperTalk 94.1 FM and AM 930, a Kindred Communications station locally owned and operated in Huntington, W.Va., is adding more Major League Baseball to its sports lineup. The stations become affiliates of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Radio Network beginning Monday, April 14.
Paul Swann, Program Director of SuperTalk 94.1 FM and AM 930 (WRVC-AM/FM), announced the Bucs' broadcasts will debut on April 14, when the Pirates battle their National League Central Division rival, the Cincinnati Reds. Airtime is 6:40 p.m. The broadcast year includes more than 140 regular-season games, as well as the postseason.
Paul Swann, in-studio, and Woody Woodrum, Union Pub & Grill, co-anchored. They discussed MU basketball; tournament destinations; Marshall's sports weekend; M.U.'s 10 year master plan as discussed by Karen Kirtley, senior vice president of administration at Marshall.
Paul Swann & Woody Woodrum co-hosted and talked: the Marshall/Southern Miss game tomorrow in Hattiesburg, the football team's recruiting class announced yesterday; Jason Munz, writer, Hattiesburg American and the Clarion Ledger, gave an insight into tomorrow's basketball game; and the Diamond Club banquet of MU girls softball.
Patrick Grace of Publishers Place joined Jean Dean today and various topics were discussed such as last night's hearing in the House of Delegates chamber at the Legislature chaired by Delegate Don Perdue concerning water safety. It was well attended and at least fifty people spoke to the issue.
Journalist Dave Peyton was Jean's guest today. They discussed the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King and whether or not its fulfillment or any part of it has been realized. The charges rendered against New Jersey Governor Chris Christie by Hoboken Mayor Zimmer were detailed. Her complaint was that her city did not receive Hurricane Sandy funds because of her reluctance to support a specific NJ project. Hoboken received $72 million in Federal funds.
Jean was joined by co-host Alex Hackney and their first guest was Bruce Marquis, Executive Director of the Paramount Arts Center. A newcomer to Ashland Bruce spoke of upcoming events at the PAC and plans for family and educational outreach.
Bos and Dotty Johnson joined Jean today and the legalization of marijuana for entertainment use as recently enacted in Colorado drew comments as to whether or not such use can predictably lead to the use of "harder" drugs such as heroin and cocaine. Alcohol was also brought into the conversation. A bill to be introduced in the West Virginia House (Legislature) by Delegate Don Perdue, D-Wayne County requiring a prescription for the purchase of pseudoephedrine (cold decongestants) by prescription only rather than OTC was also debated.
