Tony Segreto joined the WTVJ news team when he was just 18 years old. Now, 40 years later, Tony Segreto is saying goodbye to the South Florida airwaves after a lifetime of dedication to TV News. In a written statement released on nbc6.net, Tony talks about how working in TV news has always been a dream of his.
This promo has been running for about two weeks:
Tony, who is married with two children, says he’s not going anywhere except off your television set. He has stated that he wishes to remain in South Florida throughout his retirement. Tony’s commitment to his community has been clearly demonstrated through his personal involvement in South Florida. He is one of the few legends left in South Florida. All this week, NBC6 is paying tribute to Tony every night on the 6PM newscast. His final day is January 9th. We have been informed that a successor for him has been named, but this is really Tony’s time and week… So we’ll announce more information on his replacement at the end of the week. Stay tuned.
I know I speak for all of South Florida when i say “Thank You, Tony.” He has been there for South Florida in some of our toughest times, and for that, we thank him. Goodbye Tony, and have a wonderful retirement. You will be missed!
