Dante Renzulli

Posted: Updated:

Dante Renzulli has been working in television news since 2007. He is a multimedia journalist (MMJ) which means he is a news reporter who simultaneously does his own video photography. Sometimes when you see him in front of the camera, there is no one behind it. Send him an email: dante.renzulli@cbs46.com

Have you been asked to call Dante Renzulli? Read below:

Because he frequently drives a news van over long distances, Dante prefers phone calls to e-mails and other written messages.  If you are asked to contact him regarding a story, he will generally need to hear from you within a few hours or not at all. The deadlines in television news are much shorter than in print journalism. Reports are likely to run without your input if your response is untimely.  If you are asked to comment or do an interview about a given topic that is in the news, you should expect to be in front of a camera. Anything said off-camera (e.g. e-mail, text, phone) is generally unusable unless you are an authority figure or official spokesperson of some kind. Exceptions rarely apply.  By law, no phone calls can be recorded without your permission. 

On the subject of social media

If you receive a Facebook friend request from Dante and you've never met him before, he is probably trying to send you an urgent message related to a news report set to air soon.  Due to Facebook's unfortunate design, messages from people with whom you are not "friends" are hidden in the social media equivalent of a junk mail folder.  You may not see his message unless you accept the friend request. Feel free to "un-friend" him immediately after reading the message and he will not be offended.
