AM 970 was once known as WEBR. It was the radio station where the Lone Ranger rode. WEBR was the home of Carroll Hardy's Jazz Central and Al Wallack's Jazz in the Nighttime. For 17 years, this station was home to the largest and best radio newsroom in the history of Buffalo broadcasting with WEBR Newsradio 970. WEBR was the Sound of the City!
To all of you who graced the airwaves of AM 970, thank you. Please know the legacy you built will live on as two great radio stations now truly become one at 88.7 FM, WBFO.
