Medaille Alum Eileen Buckley ’85 Honored at NYS Associated Press Association Awards


Medaille College alum Eileen Buckley ’85, senior reporter at WBFO-FM 88.7, was honored at the recent New York State Associated Press Association awards banquet. In addition to winning first place for the Art Athens General Excellence of Individual Reporting for the ninth time, Buckley also earned first place for Best Documentary (with Jonny Moran) for “The Education Experience” and second place for Best Use of Sound for “Ice Cream Dude.”

Buckley’s victories helped WBFO earn more first-place awards than any other radio or television station in the state. Its total of 11 awards (nine first place and two second place) were the most won by any of New York State’s public and commercial radio stations.

Buckley received her bachelor’s in media communication at Medaille. She was recently featured in a Medaille magazine profile of distinguished alums.
