Additional content not available on our traditional broadcast channels-We know more people are watching and listening to content online than ever before. In addition to streaming our television programs and radio services, we are dedicated to producing and presenting original content that you’ll find right here on wned.org. The first digital-exclusive project is "Our Vietnam Voices” - a series showcasing Vietnam veterans and others affected by the war in our region.
One in three teenagers will experience some form of abuse in their dating relationships. WNED | WBFO has partnered with the Family Justice Center of Erie County to bring you Reach Out - Recognize Relationship Abuse, online and on television to help give you the tools you need to start a conversation with someone you think might be in an abusive relationship.
Our latest digital project is "Making Buffalo Home" - a two-year long in-depth digital engagement initiative that aims to help the region develop a better understanding of the shared opportunities and challenges we face together as long-time residents and new immigrants and refugees.
The interactive Making Buffalo Home website features a series of digital-first videos, details on community conversations, Facebook Live events and an opportunity to add your own story to our Making Buffalo Home mosaic. We’ll also highlight cultural celebrations and food traditions, showcase WBFO stories on the subject and explore the larger impact on our community.
