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.

    VIDEO: Ghost Orbs of Washington Square Park

    Ghost tour guides in Philadelphia always recommend taking lots of photos at Washington Square Park because local legend says many people are buried under the cobble stones and the light “orbs” are their spirits still roaming the grounds.  These photos were taken in rapid succession with a DSLR on an October tour of the park. Are these photos the orbs of which they speak, or just reflections. You decide.

    PHOTOS: Philly Naked Bike Ride 2014

    The Philly Naked Bike Ride is one of the most unique events that hits the city of “Brotherly Love” each year.  The ride, in its 6th year, began to spread awareness of bike advocacy and has grown each year in the number of riders, estimated at 3000 in 2014, and grown in purpose. The PNBR is a “bare as you dare” event, for a portion of the riders, that’s “naked” but for most it’s not just just sneakers and a […]

    Guess who turned 5 years old today?!  That’s right, your friendly East Falls neighborhood Rest in Peace 5K at Laurel Hill Cemetery!  In numbers that seemed to easily top previous years, runners braved the historic cemetery this Saturday, October 12. The cloudy skies and haunting winds gave the runners of all abilities and complexity of costume a great backdrop to the Halloween inspired 5k.  This race is easily one of my favorite in the city and unlike some events tucked […]
