Now, two years removed from her nearly 20-year stint as a Buffalo News sportswriter, Amy Moritz still values the “power” of stories. That theme stood out in a lengthy interview with WBFO discussing the changes in journalism. Her current story reflects the power of the moment: As her husband nurses patients on a COVID-19 unit at a local hospital, she’s “taking care of the eighty-year-olds on my end.”

The truth hurts. Just ask Bucky Gleason. Two years after leaving his job as a Buffalo News sports columnist, he remains attuned to the wobbling foundations of journalism. In a lengthy interview with WBFO, Gleason raised important questions about what we read and why we read it.

The news was the topic of a panel discussion before a packed house at the Buffalo History Museum Wednesday night.
