Tony Sandleben, Multimedia Journalist
Tony joined the ABC 57 News team in February of 2020. He is originally from Fishers, Indiana and is a proud graduate of Fishers High School.
After high school, Tony attended Ball State University from 2013 to 2018 studying Journalistic Storytelling and Political Science.
He was hired out of school to work for WAANE 15 News, the CBS affiliate in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
After a year there he was hired on at ABC 57.
Tony is a self-proclaimed Star Wars nerd. He’s also a huge sports fan, cheering passionately for the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, Cincinnati Reds, Purdue Boilermakers, Butler Bulldogs and of course his Ball State Cardinals.
In Tony’s free time, he enjoys playing with the three dogs with whom he lives (they are his aunt’s) and binge watching Law and Order.
Tony also does not shy away from the karaoke stage.
Overall, Tony is excited to be a part of the ABC 57 News team and getting to know the Michiana community he serves.
