Tony Rossi


After graduating from St. John's University in New York with degrees in Communications and English, Tony Rossi found a job at the Catholic media organization, The Christophers, that allowed him to indulge his interest in religion, media, and pop culture. He served as The Christophers' TV producer for 11 years, and is currently the host and producer of the organization's radio show/podcast Christopher Closeup, writer and editor of their syndicated Light One Candle column, and producer/scriptwriter of the annual Christopher Awards ceremony. To keep his overactive brain from exploding, Rossi enjoys watching new and classic sitcoms and voting for his favorite "American Idol" contestants. You can follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
