Tony Reno is a local radio legend who brings nostalgia, perspective and experience to the show. His co-host, Melissa Sheketoff has a background in news reporting. She gathers the top news headlines locally and nationally to keep listeners in the know. The pair are also sports enthusiasts and have your top regional headlines for professional teams and previews for games in the day ahead. The show is a combination of small talk with purpose and information that matters to you. 
 
We feature multiple live interviews every week, including from state leaders, business owners and local experts. On the list of weekly guests include Senator Richard Blumenthal, Congressman Jim Himes and Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim. For businesses we feature Celco Heating and Air Conditioning and Bob Firigno from Treeland in Stratford. For local experts we have Luke Frey from the BBB, Bridgeport Health Director Maritzka Bond, Krista Carnes who’s our social media expert, Aaron Johnson our local high school sports guru and plenty of health resources from the local hospitals. 
 
Tony and Melissa have also created original weekly segments like “Community Inspiration” and “Crime on the Mind.” Community Inspiration highlights Connecticut residents who live normal lives doing extraordinary things. Every week, you can meet people of all ages who are inspiring their community and loved ones through their work, outlook on life, actions and good deeds. Crime on the Mind features Lt. James Perez from the Fairfield Police Dept. He’s one of the only cops in CT who travels around the country teaching crime prevention to other police departments. He gives us the top crimes happening right now and tips for the public to stay safe and be proactive.
