Tony is an Assistant Editor at BBC East and runs the Technical Operations department in Norwich.
With craft skills in studio lighting and camera, you’ll often find him as Gallery Technical Manager on the full range of BBC East’s live programmes.
He joined the BBC in 1985 as a Technical Assistant, and following training at BBC Wood Norton became first a Broadcast Engineer, then a Senior Broadcast Engineer. In that role, he introduced the first Newsroom Computer System to the BBC East region, and led on the technical design, build and move of BBC Norwich to their current home at The Forum in 2003.
Following that he moved into Operations and on into Team Leadership.
He enjoys passing his knowledge and experience on to others and seeing new people to the industry develop and succeed in their careers.
As a founder member of the revived East Centre committee, he was elected as Honorary Secretary and as part of the new team worked hard to get the project off to a good start.
Now, three years later, he is Chair and wants to build on the success of the centre so far, reaching out to more people both already established in the industry or new to it.
