Tony Reese joined WJHG/WECP as a multi-media journalist in December 2020.
Tony Reese is from Smiths Station, Alabama. He graduated from Troy University in May 2019 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Sports Information.
Prior to coming to WJHG, Tony worked at our sister station affiliate WTVM in Columbus, GA where he also interned. Eventually, he was hired on as a producer for their 7 and 10 evening shows.
During his time in Columbus, he covered a number of SEC Football games including both the 2019 Orange and Outback Bowls in Tampa.
While at Troy, Tony was an anchor and reporter for the daily student-run newscast TROY TrojanVision Now and weekly sports show Trojan Sports Now.
One of Tony’s favorite experiences while at Troy included covering several key Troy games including the 2018 Dollar General Bowl, where Troy took home the trophy after defeating the Buffalo Bulls.
He also had an opportunity to study abroad in Venice, Florence, and Rome through his journalism program.
When he's not working, Tony can be found binge watching movies and TV shows, watching the Lakers or (in the Fall,) Auburn Football, channeling his inner foodie with his wife, or traveling.
Tony is excited to bring you news throughout Bay County. Don’t hesitate to say hi, when you see him out and about.
Feel free to reach out to him via email, Facebook or Twitter.
