CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Public Broadcasting says it’s launching The West Virginia Channel in January.

The network says the channel will include programs about state and Appalachian culture, history and current affairs. It also will offer news and educational programs from the national Public Broadcasting Service.

The channel is currently called WVPBS 2.

West Virginia Public Broadcasting Executive Producer Beth Vorhees says in a statement that The West Virginia Channel will have live coverage of the state Legislature’s 60-day session in Charleston.

Executive director Scott Finn says the network also will seek more programming from independent producers and produce more live broadcasts of events that West Virginians care about.
