You may have heard him mention it on the air earlier this week: WYRK's very own Clay Moden has earned a spot on 'Buffalo Business First''s list of the 250 most influential Western New Yorkers.

Ranked at #239, Clay is in good company. Also on the list are local executives, school leaders, journalists, politicians...and polar bears Luna and Kali.

The publication assembled the 2014 Power 250 List based on "who (in [their] opinion) weild[s] the most clout in the eight-county region," according to Donna Collins, 'Business First''s managing editor.

The list is limited to people living and working in Western New York; that means local business owners or other people of power who reside elsewhere were not eligible. To learn more about WHY each person was chosen, pick up a copy of the publication.

Congrats, Clay!
