BUFFALO, N.Y. – WBFO-FM 88.7 and Investigative Post have joined forces in a collaboration that will provide innovative news content to our listeners. Starting in November, Investigative Post will produce in-depth stories and provide analysis on breaking news for the public radio station. WBFO will broadcast the content while continuing to provide its own NPR news and coverage of local issues. Investigative Post reporters will also appear on WBFO’s “Press Pass,” which features interviews with journalists from local media outlets.
“Investigative Post has an impressive track record of providing in-depth perspectives on issues that are critical to Western New York’s future,” said WBFO News Director Brian Meyer. “This partnership will provide our listeners with additional insights on topics and events that affect their lives. We’re excited to launch this new collaboration.”
WBFO-FM 88.7 is the NPR member station for Western New York and Southern Ontario. WBFO has the largest radio newsroom staff in the Buffalo/Niagara region and features extensive award-winning local and regional journalism. The station’s staff has a combined 320 years of experience in radio journalism, much of it reporting in Western New York. The station has won more regional and state awards in recent years than any other radio station in the region. In addition to extensive local and regional journalism, WBFO also features the best of public radio from NPR, PRI, the BBC and American Public Media.
WBFO has a reputation of providing listeners with comprehensive, thought-provoking and balanced coverage of news that impacts their lives. The station recently enhanced its programming commitment with the addition of two new programs in its weekly schedule and introduction of new features that focus on the people, places and events that shape Western New York and Southern Ontario.
“Our partnership with WBFO adds an exciting dimension to our reporting. We’ve been producing stories for television, print and the web; our work for WBFO adds radio to the mix and makes us a complete multi-media outlet,” said Jim Heaney, editor and executive director of Investigative Post.
Investigative Post is the only nonprofit investigative reporting center based in Upstate New York. It partners with a number of news outlets in Western New York and other parts of New York State. They have earned a reputation for hard-hitting, high-impact stories since launching in February 2012. Its reporting on the Buffalo Billion prompted U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara to launch a federal investigation into the awarding of developer contracts and for members of the community to demand more diversity in the employment of construction workers at Solar City. Other investigations spurred government efforts to clean up Scajaquada Creek and reverse a decision to open Gallagher Beach for swimming because of serious water pollution.
