His retirement is now official. His last day was Friday, November 18.
Tony joined Fox 11 News in 1981. Known for his incisive hard news reporting and his LA’s Most Wanted segment, Tony earned multiple Emmy and Golden Mike awards during his lengthy broadcast career.
During his time at KTTV, he was also a weekend news anchor from November 1991 to January 1993. And for 31 years, he was a Sunday fixture as host of the station’s weekly public affairs program “Midday Sunday.”
