Anthony Amey joined WSB-TV Channel 2 in January, 2010.

A native of Washington, D.C., Anthony knew at a very early age that he wanted to be holding the microphone and asking the tough questions. He co-hosted a D.C. Public Schools cable television show in high school and began interning at Washington's WTTG, at age 17, prior to his senior year at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School.

After enjoying a 5-year work-study internship at the station, Anthony graduated from Hampton University in 1998 and immediately began his on-air career at WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Since then, he has made stops at Mobile, Ala., Sacramento, Ca., ESPN, and back home in Washington.

Anthony won the 2010 NATAS Emmy for best one-time sports program for the Falcons-Saints Monday Night Football Pregame Show.

Anthony is the proud father of two sons, Ahman and Aaron.

To beat "the man" ... you have to have "the man"

There's an old saying ... I first learned it from the great wrestler, Ric Flair.  He used to say, "To be the man, you've gotta beat the man."  Flair would say that as a message to possible future opponents interested in taking his championship belt, followed by his customary, "Wooooooooooooooooooooooo!" ...

SEC looks to establish its dominance on and off the field

The SEC's announcement that it will launch The SEC Network ends years of speculation and wondering.  The conference's clear goal is to rule the airwaves, much in the same way it has ruled college football as its unquestioned top dog.  As ESPN president John Skipper stated in downtown Atlanta, "This ...

Falcons prevailed over Seahawks 30-28 in a playoff squeaker

If "Show-Me" guys show their stuff, Falcons could be special in 2013

On Day 3 of NFL free agency, the Falcons landed arguably their biggest free agent catch since signing Michael Turner away from the San Diego Chargers in 2008.  (Remember, they traded for Tony Gonzalez in 2009 and Asante Samuel in 2012, so neither of them were considered free agents.)  They ...

A whole lot can change in less than a decade ... especially for the Falcons

On January 15, 2005, No. 88 for the Falcons was Darnell Sanders.  Today, it's Tony Gonzalez.  Thomas DeCoud is a major playmaker for the team this year, leading Atlanta with six interceptions.  Back then, it was Warrick Dunn who wore No. 28 while racking up 142 yards and 2 touchdowns.  ...

Now things are about to heat up for the Falcons

I hope Matt Ryan is prepared for two to three times the number of microphones and tape recorders surrounding him in this picture, because they're coming.  The attention, the respect, the questions, the pressure:  They're all coming if the Falcons continue to win.  This week, the 8-0 Falcons continued to ...

Are the Birds the best team in the biz?

A familiar feeling is starting to creep in regarding the Braves

17 years have passed since the picture with this blog was taken, as the Braves celebrated their 1995 World Series championship.  But the wounds from the most recent late-season failures are much more fresh in the minds of Braves fans.  And after Wednesday's 8-2 loss (to a Padres team 10 ...

There's a special feeling around these Falcons

Too often in life we recognize the significance of a moment only in retrospect.  Once we look back, we enjoy what was.  So is it possible to see greatness before it happens?  I ask, because there is a certain feeling in Flowery Branch.  Is it a buzz?  Is it just ...

Superman should have known better

"Look where we are.  We're in a great position." Those were Dwight Howard's words on March 15, in Orlando, Fla., shortly after signing away his ability to become a free agent this summer.  Now, Howard wishes his position were anything but the one he finds himself in.  However, the unfortunate ...

I've heard so many of you complain over the last two years about Joe Johnson's contract.  Well, there's a chance it could be Jay-Z's problem in the not-too-distant future.  Yahoo!
