The Biffalo
Mascot

As the superstar and face of the Biff, I get asked a lot, “Who IS the Biffalo?” I always answer the same, weather it’s by a student or news reporter, “I am who I am. Just another Biffalo fighting the good fight of High School Radio.” Only few know who I am as a person. Those people I like to call Staffers. These “Staffers” consist of everyone on air on the Biff now, in the past, and in the future. Seeing the generations of Biffers go bye warms my heart and opens my eyes and heart to new memories and new experiences. I have loved every moment on the Biff since I had started working here. I can’t wait for the years to come to add even more gold records as the Biff re-earns the title as Station of the Year. Every year is amazing and I have enjoyed every second of my time here at the Biff.

Otto Mation
Air Personality Extraordinaire

Otto Mation has been on the WBFH Staff for a loooooooooooooong time. He gets more airtime than any staff member, and very little credit for it. His hours are crazy. He’s on the air from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. every school day. He’s on the air every weekend, on school breaks and all summer long! Otto is a valuable member of the staff because he keeps us on the air when no students are here so we can broadcast 24/7/365. He’s the one who plays the best of the old and the best of the new!
