Anthony Carlo joined the News 12 news team in February, 2016. Anthony was born and raised in Yonkers, just across the border from the Bronx. His parents spent part of their lives as Bronxites, so Anthony has been accustomed to frequently visiting the borough for Arthur Avenue's famous Italian restaurants, before reporting here.
Prior to working at News 12, Anthony was covering stories in Queens and Staten Island for NY1 as a multimedia journalist news assistant.
Anthony graduated from Iona College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication. While in school, Anthony won "The Warner Wolf Award for Best TV Sports Reporting." He was also an anchor/reporter for a public access channel called LMC-TV, winning an award for "Best News Package.” Anthony held internships at CBS Sports, CBS News, SNY, and FiOS1 News. Working alongside icons like Charles Osgood, Jane Pauley and Scott Pelley, Anthony strove to gain as much experience as he could.
During his time at News 12, Anthony has garnered three Emmy nominations for his extensive coverage of the ‘Junior’ Trial. Anthony was nominated for his digital coverage of the Murder of Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz, a 15-year-old Bronx boy, and also received two nominations for an investigative half hour crime special on the gang responsible for murdering ‘Junior’ after mistaking him for a rival gang member. Anthony’s piece, “Justice for Junior: Terror of the Trinitarios,” also won the New York City Press Club’s First Place award for Crime Reporting in the 2020 Journalism Awards. Anthony and his News 12 The Bronx/Brooklyn team also placed first in the Associated Press Awards for their special programming on the ‘Junior’ story.
In his spare time, Anthony enjoys exercising and watching Yankees baseball. He also loves spending time with his family and is a big fan of the 'Rocky' movies.
