Sep. 28, 2012 @ 12:40 AM

WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) -- The Wheeling Jamboree has a new home at Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack.

Officials are announcing details Thursday. The first live, weekly country music show in the casino showroom is Oct. 6.

The Jamboree is heard worldwide by radio, video on demand and a streaming internet feed. It was housed at the historic Capitol Music Hall from the early 1930s to 2007, when the hall was closed for safety reasons.
