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 hosts Weekend Philler, the creative services weekend show that he also produces for. If he seems familiar you might recognize his voice from commercials, or recognize his “mug” from promos, most notably, retro 70s character “Peter Cheeseman” in the Eye Opener promos.
