Tony has been a vital member of the PHL17 Creative Services team since 2008. In addition to managing the web department, Tony writes, shoots and edits stories, galleries and videos that have generated millions of views for PHL17. And that clever tweet or funny Facebook post or picture that made you laugh? Good chance that it came from him, as Tony also overseas the station’s social media efforts. Social media rule of thumb? If the tweet or post is funny, Tony wrote it.

When Tony is not slinging webs for PHL17 he lends a hand in other Creative Services endeavors. You just might hear his voice in a commercial, or catch him in front of the camera for a promo. Most notably, Tony appears as “Peter Cheeseman” in the Eye Opener promos.
