Inside Shale: "Best Network Special Series"

This was the second year in a row that the program received the award. The honors are given to radio and television stations for excellence in broadcasting in multiple categories. This year’s entries were judged by the Kentucky broadcasters.

Inside Shale is a weekly one hour talk show heard on several radio stations within the Marcellus Shale drilling region. The show is sponsored by the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association. Hosted by West Virginia Radio Corporation Market Manager, Gary Mertins, the program airs every Tuesday morning 9am-10am. Guests this past year have included many politicians including West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and Congresswoman Shelly Moore Capito as well as dozens of operators and natural gas industry experts.

“We’re very proud to win this award for the second year in a row, “ said Inside Shale Host Gary Mertins. “The program has been well received by our listeners. Inside Shale has proven to our weekly audience that the natural gas industry is truly affecting everyone in West Virginia in some way.” We’re proud to make our listeners aware of the many positive things that are happening with natural gas and we are glad to tackle the tough issues and questions that the public is asking about the natural gas drilling process.”

EPA Proposed Rule Admits What Agency Has Done for Years

In a proposed rule leaked to public sources on November 14, the U.S. Environmental Agency and Army Corps of Engineers provide a defintion of “waters of the United States” and other terms in support of its definition.  The proposed regulation was immediately described by some, including members of Conress, as a “power grab.”  It is more accurately a tacit recognition by the agencies of what they have been doing for more than four years.  The only real change that will occur from the rule, if adopted, will be to allow the agencies to determine jurisdiction over a particular stream channel based upon a document review.  Verification by field examination will no longer be required.
