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

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

After four homicides in just over a month in Bridgeport, a youth gun violence round table was held Thursday morning in the Mayor’s conference room. The participants say there was a valuable exchange of ideas including the discussion of a disturbing trend: incorporating social media in the commission of crimes. “They are sending out messages brazenly about either crimes that they’re going to commit or have committed,” said Mayor Joseph Ganim (D-Bridgeport).
