TONY BETTON, JR CHILD PRODIGY TURNS LOCAL NEWS ANCHOR, JOURNALIST.
I had the opportunity to interview Tony about his journey and what he loves most about his new job. He is the weekday morning anchor and special projects reporter for ABC21 in Fort Wayne, IN. Tony is a native of Atlanta, GA and graduated from Georgia State University ('19) where he studied broadcast journalism, public relations and entertainment media management. In addition to his anchor role in Fort Wayne, he is a Gray Television ambassador. He currently serves on the planning committee for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana’s Black Business Card Party and is an alumni of the Usher’s New Look Foundation, having just celebrated 10 years in the program.
Tony is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and the founder of his own media company, The REP Zone. Before ABC21, Tony was a studio production intern for ABC News' Good Morning America in NYC and completed internships with Channel 2 Action News (WSB-TV), the Boys and Girls Clubs of America Headquarters, Ryan Seacrest Studios, & FOX 5 Atlanta (WAGA). When he is not reporting, you may find Tony volunteering in the community, hosting special events, public speaking, finding more ways to build his brand and hanging out with friends and family. He also loves to inspire others in finding their passions and following their dreams.
