WBFO-FM 88.7, UB’s National Public Radio affiliate, won 10 awards—including the coveted Stephen Flanders Memorial Award—at the New York State Associated Press Broadcasters Association’s annual awards banquet.

The Flanders award—the AP’s highest radio honor—is given to the station (commercial or public) in New York deemed by the judges to “exemplify the best traditions of journalistic initiative and dedication in providing a complete news service to the listening public.” The honor is awarded to the station receiving the greatest number of top finishes in the competition.
