Gospel Music Minute to debut on WUFO 1080 AM this Monday

Buffalo, N.Y. (November 9, 2007) – The Gospel Music Minute update, a locally-produced, 3-minute spot, will begin airing twice daily on Buffalo's WUFO 1080 AM this Monday, November 12. Produced by's Mark Weber and WUFO's Duane Price, the Gospel Music Minute update will bring area listeners news about music artists and events from both a local and national perspective. Updates will air weekdays at 8:35 a.m. and 4:35 p.m. on the station.

The Gospel Music Minute is the brainchild of local Christian events promoter Mark Weber, who runs both, a regional site detailing Christian and family-friendly events in Toronto, Buffalo, and Rochester, and, a popular, internationally-known site with music news, reviews, and interviews covering a wide variety of artists and genres.

“I attended the recent Christian Heritage Festival at the Buffalo Christian Center downtown, and met some executives from WUFO who were impressed with my musical knowledge and pleasant demeanor,” says Weber. “They asked me to visit their station, and I suggested to them that I could share Gospel music news with their listeners. They loved the idea, so it's a go. WUFO has welcomed me with open arms.”

Weber, who is white, is unique because he's on a station with an almost exclusively black staff and listening audience.“

One of the things I aim to do is to help build bridges between whites, blacks, and people of all colors and ethnicities here in the Buffalo area,” says Weber. “And music is something that connects and can help unite us all, so I see my being at WUFO as a chance to help network together lots of different people, while informing them about artists worth listening to and events worth attending.”

WUFO 1080 AM is owned by Sheridan Broadcasting Corporation of Pittsburgh. The station is currently celebrating 45 years of continuous operation in the Buffalo area.
