In 2010, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Suncoast Chapter inducted Tony into its Silver Circle, recognizing 25 years of excellence in television.

Over those years, Tony -- teamed with chief photojournalist Darran Caudle -- has been honored with dozens of awards, including 11 Emmys and several regional Edward R. Murrow Awards and Green Eyeshade Awards from the Society of Professional Journalists.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Tony came to WKMG in September 1987, working his way up from a writer and assistant assignment editor to producer, general assignment reporter and, since 1991, investigative reporter.

Tony and his wife, Myriam, stay fairly busy keeping up with their two sons. They enjoy beach vacations and weekend getaways. When he needs to unwind --which is often -- Tony can be found on a local golf course or in his home office, picking up an old guitar and playing ... loudly.

A 1983 graduate of the University of Maryland at College Park (and witness to the Terps’ 2002 national basketball championship), Tony earned a bachelor's degree in journalism. But he also learned the value of a good, hard day's work when, as a teen, he spent several sweltering summers helping repair and install air conditioning systems in Baltimore.
