He understands the history, the politics and the cultures of this part of the world, and its reflected in his stories from Chile. He has covered a range of topics from societal issues, natural disasters, politics and economics.

 His first job in broadcast journalism was at WWLP-TV 22, the NBC affiliate in western Massachusetts. He remembers it well, “I got that job while on a study abroad program in Santiago, Chile. I still remember Skyping with my first news director while battling the shoddy Wi-Fi connection. As a journalist, I want to share people's reality with the world. I also care about social issues and shedding a light on topics such as immigration, poverty, economic mobility, and equality. I feel that these stories give people from around world compassion and allows them to understand the experiences behind the headlines.”

 As a child, he was naturally curious, reading everything he could get his hands on and asking a lot of questions. Perhaps that is what lead to his interest in politics and history. He gravitated toward stories pertaining to society, politics, and economics. Anthony traveled to Europe spending time in France and Turkey studying international politics and economics. He spent time in Mexico and South America learning more about other cultures, learning Spanish and all the time asking questions and seeking answers. He has covered a range of topics from societal issues, natural disasters, politics and economics. Anthony has a unique ability to do hard-hitting and, at times, complicated international stories with a dose of compassion.

Anthony says “I believe context and history are essential in telling stories. I want to update my audience with what’s new, but I also feel the need to contextualize these events. That’s our job as journalists; we’re investigators, not just story tellers.” Anthony is available immediately.
