Buffalo, NY – The group "Buffalo Broadcasters" is holding its ninth annual Broadcasting Hall of Fame celebration Tuesday night. Seven broadcasting legends are being inducted into the Hall. And for the first time, one is from WBFO.

Jim Santella will be inducted into the Buffalo Broadcasting Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the WNED studios. Santella made his mark as a pioneer in what was known as "progressive rock" radio.
