This is SUCH great news coming from my hometown and Loooooooooooooong overdue.
Heritage outlet WUFO, which just celebrated 56 years of broadcasting, will now be simulcast on the FM dial at 107-fm. The AM which is on 1080 AM has survived for decades when many AM black stations have died off. WUFO-AM will broadcast from sun up to sun down as always but the FM will operate for 24 hours.
“Every sales person and announcer who’s been here has wished for this,” Sheila Brown, majority owner of the station, stated about the new FM channel. “For us, history is being made.” The only other Black station in Buffalo is WBLK. Buffalo’s black community makes up 33% of the city’s population
