Weekend Philler is a weekly video clip show that runs on the weekend on PHL17 (Currently Saturday nights at 11:30 pm and Sunday nights at 5:00 pm). The videos are lighthearted short pieces about interesting people, places and things all over Philly, NJ and DE. We like to say we’re putting the YOU, back in UHF… (even though we are fully aware people under 30 have no idea what that means.) Basically it hearkens back to a time in local TV when UHF channels took themselves a little less seriously and had the freedom to make really interesting content.
Weekend Philler is hosted by Tony Romeo and produced by PHL17’s award-winning Creative Services Department. The team of producers that make Weekend Philler are very much like the the Breakfast Club. They are all very different, but still a little the same– and of course forced to come in on Saturday by the Principal– or something like that. The end result is a wide variety of local videos with something for everyone. Since the show began in 2016 Weekend Philler has received numerous industry award for content, had a craft beer named after the show and made hundreds of new best friends in the stories we cover and thousands more friends that watch every weekend.
But the real star of the show is YOU. We give you the mic and let you tell your extraordinary stories. We put a lot of care into our segments because we love this area, we love putting great people and great stories on TV and we are always looking for new ideas.
