The Buffalo News has selected Mike Connelly of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune to become editor and vice president, taking over for Margaret Sullivan who left for the New York Times earlier this month. 

Connelly takes over in a challenging time for newspapers across the U.S. 

WBFO and AM 970's Jim Ranney talked with Lee Coppola, former dean of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at St. Bonaventure University, about the challenges the new editor faces.

Lee Coppola will be inducted into the Buffalo Broadcasting Hall of Fame Class of 2012 Thursday evening.
