Whether you've lived in Western New York all your life, arrived recently, or only visit for the holidays, there's probably something for you in Right Here, Right Now: The Buffalo Anthology. The book takes a wide-ranging look at the community and the good and bad of its past. WBFO's Mike Desmond spoke with Jody Biehl, director of UB's Journalism Program and the editor of the new anthology.

Mike Desmond is one of Western New York’s most experienced reporters, having spent nearly a half-century covering the region for newspapers, television stations and public radio. He has been with WBFO and its predecessor, WNED-AM, since 1988. As a reporter for WBFO, he has covered literally thousands of stories involving education, science, business, the environment and many other issues. Mike has been a long-time theater reviewer for a variety of publications and was formerly a part-time reporter for The New York Times.
