Hi Delmarva! I’m Jonah Restuccio, a sports reporter and fill-in anchor.
I started here at 47 ABC in June as a news reporter before making my transition to the sports department. I’m from the deep part of Upstate New York, Oswego to be exact, and recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from Ithaca College (Roll Bombers!)
I’ve been a huge sports fan my whole life, growing up playing basketball and soccer. I’m a die-hard Syracuse sports fan and love the Boston Celtics and Boston Red Sox.
During my time at Ithaca, I won a College Emmy for producing our college’s sport debate show, and was one of the only two-time ever hosts of our flagship football show, “The Gridiron Report.” I could also be found roaming the sidelines at Butterfield Stadium as the team’s TV reporter. I studied at Ithaca’s Los Angeles campus where I interned at Fox Sports 1 and was lucky enough to help on the Super Bowl NBA playoffs, NCAA tournament, and report from Clippers, Lakers and Kings games.
I know how special local and professional sports are to the region, and can’t wait to tell the stories of the athletes and teams all around the Peninsula. If you have a story idea, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
