Tony is a general assignment reporter who joined the CBS47 team in the September 2007.

A native Californian, Tony grew up in the East Bay. He graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in broadcast journalism. While in school, Tony interned for KTVU and Fox Sports Bay Area.

Originally, he dreamed of becoming a sportscaster. However, a job opportunity in the news department of KRCR-TV in Redding kicked open the door open and created a shift in his career path. He took the news baton and never looked back. After spending a little more than 3 years in the Northstate, he migrated south to the Central Valley.

?The different places and people the news business takes me to each day is what makes the job exciting. It's interesting to see life through the eyes of others. It provides an opportunity to learn a little bit about a lot of different subjects, in turn making me a more well-rounded person.?

Tony is an avid San Francisco Giants and 49ers fan. In his spare time, he enjoys exercising and spending time with his wife and two children.
