Tony Mastro - WHLT 22 Connecting the Pine Belt

Tony Mastro

Tony's weather career began in 1985. "Hurricane Gloria hit the coast of Rhode Island where I grew up. CB radios were the craze. There was a CB antenna on the roof that the hurricane took off the roof and planted in the neighbor's house sideways…I was hooked!"  


Tony received his Bachelor of Science Degree and minor in math from Lyndon State College in Vermont. This was followed up with his Television Seal of Approval from the American Meteorological Society – out of 10,000 members of the AMS, only 10% have earned the seal.


When he's not in the weather lab, Tony enjoys a wide variety of interests and activities. His father played in the Marine Drum and Bugle Corps…so we owe Tony's love of jazz to good ol' dad. Tony played in a 30-piece swing band in high school (swing is his favorite), competed and toured in the Drum Corps International, and plays just about every brass instrument. "Well, the trumpet, mostly…I was born in the wrong era…should have been the late '30s and '40s."

Tony loves to cook Italian, is an avid swimmer, a big fan of the Star Trek movies, and does carpentry and tile work when he's not forecasting the weather.
