The 11th Senatorial District of Fayette, Nicholas, Webster, Clay and Upshur Counties has a familiar voice streaming across their airwaves during the 2008 Legislative Session. Senator Shirley Love (D) Fayette, keeps his constituents up-to-date on what is happening in the Legislature with a weekly legislative update on a series of radio stations throughout his district.
The broadcast is produced with the help of interns who work with the Legislature through a Legislative Intern Program jointly co-ordinated by the Journalism Departments of West Virginia University and Marshall University.
Love is a former broadcaster with more than forty years of experience on WOAY-TV and Radio before entering the Senate.
Love also supplies a Legislative Update Column to the weekly newspapers through his District. These columns can be viewed on his Web site at http://www.senatorlove.com
