Radio We're thrilled to announce that WBFO has been named Outstanding News Operation in radio by the New York State Associated Press, snaring three first-place awards, eight second-place awards and four third-place awards in the annual AP awards competition. This is the fourth consecutive year the Associated Press has awarded WBFO the Outstanding News Operation in its radio class, which covers stations across the state outside of New York City. During an awards ceremony in Saratoga Springs, NY, the AP also honored WBFO in a dozen other journalistic categories, including reporting excellence, newscast excellence, digital presence, documentaries, investigative reporting, news series and use of sound. We've got a new look! The web team has been hard at work over the last several months creating a brand new WNED | WBFO website. The new site, still found at wned.org, offers a clean design with bold imagery. For the first time in its existence, wned.org is now a responsive site, meaning the page content will adjust to provide an optimal viewing experience for those accessing the site using computers or mobile devices. The main goal of the site rebuild is to increase the amount of content which in turn aims to increase engagement. The website features fresh, in-depth information regarding Leadership and Legacy Giving Programs at WNED | WBFO. Check it out today at wned.org!
