Tony Smith is a Multi-Media Journalist, General Assignment Reporter and Weather Anchor. You'll see him reporting stories throughout the Triad and don't be surprised if you see him giving a weather forecast, as well! Tony joined WFMY in May 2012.

He started in television as an Associate Producer in Miami, Fla., eventually moving to work as a Video Journalist. He comes to the Triad from WTKR-TV in Norfolk, VA. He fondly recalls some of his career high points -- meeting the legendary heavyweight champion Mohammed Ali and Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Tony first showed an interest in broadcasting at the tender age of 6. His mother remembers Tony watching the news and saying "This is Tony Smith with the 6 o'clock news." Born in Chicago, IL, Tony is a graduate of Barry University of Miami, Florida. He spends his free time enjoying the outdoors and swimming. He is currently working on his Meteorology Certification from Mississippi State University. If you see him say hello!
