WBFO-FM 88.7 is introducing a new regular segment to its morning news lineup during the Bills season. “Beyond the Playbook” will provide insightful and lively commentary on the Buffalo Bills. WBFO morning host Jay Moran and commentator Matt Sabuda will chat twice a week about a broader team perspective, highlighting trends and developments with the Bills on and off the field.
“We know that Buffalo is a die-hard sports town and many of our regular listeners are avid Bills fans,” said WNED ǀ WBFO president and CEO Donald K. Boswell. “This new segment will allow our listeners to keep up with the Bills while enjoying the in-depth news programming that WBFO and NPR offers in the morning.”
The new segment will premiere on Monday, September 8 and will be heard each Monday and Friday mornings at 7:30 and 9:30 a.m. during “Morning Edition.”
