Tony Hernandez's Modeling Jobs, Acting Auditions and Additional Experience
Following a 36-year career in broadcasting, primarily as a TV & Radio sportscaster, I "retired" to Northwest Montana. Upon arriving at my new home six years ago, I began pursuing a lifelong passion and dream of acting. Although I live in a small community, the theatrical opportunities here are large and rich, as our small town of 7,000 people has three theatre companies, one of which is an equity company.
I have worked with all three companies, participating as an actor in over thirty productions, including both straight plays and musicals. My resume section should enumerate many of those productions. Getting back to my broadcasting career, besides the small markets I worked in to develop myself as a professional, I eventually worked in such major markets as San Francisco, Philadelphia and New York, although the last 26 years of my career were spent in Los Angeles. I've done everything from play-by-play for the Los Angeles Dodgers, to anchoring and reporting on local TV news, to variety and entertainment show hosting, radio talk show hosting, game show hosting and booth announcing. I even spent two years as a singing ringmaster for the Emmett Kelly, Jr. All-Star circus, and once played minor league baseball for the Chicago Cubs.
