The STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT BUFFALO's noncommercial WBFO/BUFFALO will cut back on music programming and increase the amount of NPR news and public affairs programming by six hours each weekday, starting FEBRUARY 1st. The station is adding "ON POINT" at 10a, "TELL ME MORE" at 11a, "FRESH AIR" at noon and 7p, and "CAPITOL PRESSROOM" at 1p.
Jazz programming will start at 10p weeknights and midnight weekends, and Blues programming will air noon-5p on weekends, which will also feature NPR's "WAIT, WAIT, DON'T TELL ME" and "CAR TALK."
"We want to concentrate our efforts on what we do best, which is news journalism and public affairs programming, in order to make this excellent station an even stronger asset for the WESTERN NEW YORK community," said interim GM MARK VOGELZANG.
