Logan county's legendary broadcaster Jay Nunley has been named as one of the the West Virginia Broadcasting Hall of Fame's 2022 inductees.
With over three decades in radio broadcasting, Jay began his career in high school at WLHS in Logan. He has worked at Rock 105, WKLC-FM in St. Albans, and served as news director and general manager at WVOW-FM before retiring to serve in a pastoral role for the Presbyterian Church of Logan and Gilbert.
