Panhandle Live is an hour long journey across West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle. The area's longest running local talk program offering relevant news, politics, and information to listeners. Host and WEPM news director Hans Fogle has distinguished himself in the news industry and brings that knowledge to the conversation as he discusses the issues of the day with local officials, state leaders, business members, and anyone else contributing to life in Berkeley, Morgan, and Jefferson Counties.
Through Panhandle Live, Fogle provides his listeners with unequaled access to people making the news happen from outside their front doors to the capitol dome in Charleston. It's a daily combination of journalism, fun, and local flavor.

Vince Wilson, Parapsychologist and Hypnotist joined us to talk about Halloween at the Haunted Cottage in Harpers Ferry. Vince has been working to make haunting a big business for the Eastern Panhandle. All month the Haunted Cottage has been entertaining with ghost tours, paranormal work shops and more. All the details are on their website.
And Michael Whalton joined us from the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation. It's time for the West Virginia Neighborhood Investment Program. This is a project of the West Virginia Development Office and it provides State Tax Credits to individuals and business who support nonprofit organizations that work to help distressed neighborhoods, provide assistance to low-income residents, and fund educational opportunities for individuals with financial needs. The Community Foundation applied for and received a substantial number of these NIP tax credits and are working with area donors to help put them to the highest and best use. Credits are limited! Please contact them quickly if you’re interested. We award credits on a first-come, first-serve basis and once they’re gone, they’re gone. Call Michael Whalton at 304-264-0353 or email mwhalton@EWVCF.org to discuss your charitable vision and to find out more—and reserve your credits.
