After an eight year hiatus, Tony returned to the FOX61 family in January, 2013, as a General Assignment News Reporter and fill-in Anchor.

During his first stint with the station, from 1993-2005, Tony was an award-winning sports anchor and reporter.

Tony’s return to FOX61 afforded him the opportunity to work with his father, Al Terzi, a FOX61 Anchor, for the first time in their extensive careers. In fact, on December 26, 2013, they became only the second father-son duo to co-anchor a newscast.

Tony and his wife, Susan, are the proud parents of two teenage sons.
