About Tony

I’m an award-winning journalist, broadcaster, and international communications professional with 15 years with public radio, television, and new media outlets in the U.S., Germany, and Switzerland. I am a proponent of cultural literacy, exchange, and understanding, and particularly like helping retain nuance and character in interviews. My radio, video, and multimedia contributions have been published by, among others, NPR, the BBC, PRI, Deutsche Welle, Unabridged Press, and Swissinfo. I also operate as Cherry Mountain Media, offering journalism, podcasting, and audio training services. I contribute selected essays on Medium, and produce a web series on bread baking and journalism. I’m also creator, host, and curator of the Faith Full Podcast on religion, faith, and life. I’ve worked most recently as a drive-time anchor for the NPR station in Cleveland. From 2010 to June 2013 I was a Zurich-based correspondent for the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation’s English-language service World Radio Switzerland. I hold an M.A. in International Relations and World Order (with Merit) from the University of Leicester; and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Journalism from the University of Idaho. I'm a recipient of the Robert Bosch Fellowship for Young American Leaders, and the Arthur F. Burns Fellowship from the International Center for Journalists. My work has been honored by the Religion Newswriters Association (RNA); and garnered a second place National Headliner Award in 2017; three Edward R. Murrow awards from the RTDNA in 2014; a third place National Headliner Award in 2014; five Edward R. Murrow awards in 2013; among others. Please find my full bio at
