I sort of felt like a proud parent last night May 23rd at the Buffalo Business First 7th annual 30 Under 30 Awards reception. Our own Rob Banks was recognized as one of Buffalo's 30 Under 30 recipients for the 2018 class.  The event was held at the Tralf and honored the 30 new members of this prestigious list of Buffalo's best in business.

I'm proud to say that I hired Rob and became a mentor to him at WYRK and Townsquare Media.  Rob who is a Graduate of Lancaster High School as well as the University of Buffalo, is a hard worker who has so much passion for his job.  I knew he was a diamond in the rough when I first met him.  I couldn't be more proud of his accomplishments here at the station but you may not know of his involvement with the Buffalo Zoo, Big Brothers and Sisters and the Buffalo City Mission.  He would never toot his own horn about what he does, so I'll gladly do this for him.  Rob has a bright future a head of him and I'm honored to have a front row seat to see what is in store for this talented young man.

Congratulations Rob!!
