TONY Rutanashoodech, Videojournalist, KNTV NBC Bay Area
Tony Rutanashoodech started out as a weather producer at KMPH FOX 26 in Fresno. Tony’s job was to basically build graphics for the weather segment and, at the same time, was attending Fresno State as a Graphic Design major. Slowly from there, Tony became more and more involved with news and journalism. A photographer spot opened up at KMPH and as Tony puts it…”it just seems to me like the perfect crossroad between art/design/photography and journalism, so I applied”. Since then, Tony went from KMPH to KGPE CBS 47 in Fresno, then to KPIX CBS 5 in San Francisco, and now currently works at NBC Bay Area. Tony is interested in a Governor’s position and says he is always looking for ways to learn and grow from different experiences.
