Tony joined PRE in mid 2019, bringing experience in broadcast, print, and internet media. At different points, he has worked as a radio host, news anchor/reporter, producer, and promotions director; advertising/PR consultant; newspaper editor; freelance contributor to the Associated Press and various newspapers; and ghostwriter. For 17 years, he wrote a monthly column on business management strategies for a national trade magazine.
Numerous vacations on North Carolina’s Outer Banks persuaded Tony in 2005 to move from his native Pennsylvania, where his two adult sons still reside, to Eastern North Carolina. “I tuned in Public Radio East,” he says, “and I’ve been listening ever since.”
Tony and his partner Shari live in Oriental.
