Beckley-area weather hotline ready to pull plug unless sponsorship continues
Reported by: Associated Press

A telephone hotline that's given the time and weather forecast to callers in the Beckley area for 56 years is about to disappear unless a sponsor steps forward.
Scott says she's received interest from potential sponsors, but as of late Thursday afternoon, no commitments. A local car dealership's sponsorship recently ended.
Scott says a final decision whether to pull the plug will be made by the middle of next week.
The Register-Herald reports the hotline has been around since 1957.
Interested sponsors can call Scott at 1-888-746-4382, extension 5310.
