Tony is a freelance journalist who specializes in tackling the difficult subjects and telling the life stories that matter. His work has appeared in various consumer magazines, trade journals, newspapers and now, radio.

He’s active in the community, and has been covering local Smiths Falls and area happenings for various news outlets since moving to the town in 2010. Tony says he feels most at home with Lake 88 and loves being a part of this community-minded station. “And hey, I’m always up for a challenge or friendly throw-down to benefit the community,” says Tony.

To relax, the avid foodie and father of six (yes, six) kids likes to hang out in the kitchen where he shamelessly uses and lives by his favourite celebrity-cook David Rocco’s tagline, “I’m not a chef, I’m Italian.”
