Tony Romeo is Harrisburg bureau chief for KYW Newsradio 1060.
Born and raised in the Harrisburg area, Romeo began his professional career at age 18, while in college at Penn State Harrisburg. He was still a college student when he covered the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster for WSBA Radio in York, Pa.
Romeo also worked for five years as a television reporter in Harrisburg, and served as news director for an AM-FM pair of stations in White Plains, NY. He has also worked at stations in Florida and Texas.
Romeo came to KYW Newsradio in the summer of 1990. In 1993 he was assigned to a choice beat: to succeed famed reporter Sandy Starobin as Harrisburg bureau chief. In 1994, he came to Philadelphia and the City Hall bureau, where he served as bureau chief.
Romeo has covered major stories during the administrations of John Street and Ed Rendell, including the Philadelphia school district takeover, sports stadium controversies, the 1999 mayoral campaign, and the Republican National Convention in 2000.
On January 1, 2003, with former Philadelphia mayor Ed Rendell elected to serve as Pennsylvania governor, Romeo was tapped to return to Harrisburg for a second stint as bureau chief there. KYW Newsradio said Romeo’s appointment was part of the station’s plan to beef up its coverage in that area.
In his spare time, Tony has served as publicity chairman of the South Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
