Tony has been vital member of the PHL17 since 2008. He proudly serves as producer and host of the award-winning tv show Weekend Philler. If he seems oddly familiar, you may recognize his “mug” from promos, most notably, retro 70s character “Peter Cheeseman in PHL’s promos. You’ve probably even heard his voice in a commercial or, two.

When Tony is not “philling your weekend,” he manages the web department where he writes, shoots and edits stories, galleries and videos that have generated millions of views for PHL17. That clever tweet or funny Facebook post that made you laugh? Chances are, it came from Tony, as he also overseas the station’s social media efforts.
