MARTINSBURG, W.Va.  — West Virginia University has named an interim general manager to lead its radio station as it investigates sexual harassment allegations against Matthew Fouty made by students working at the station.

Contacted by phone Monday afternoon, John A. Bolt, senior executive director of WVU relations office and communications, confirmed that Fouty is the subject of a Title IX investigation.

A group of students held a news conference Monday afternoon detailing their complaints.
