Vox Populi: The O'Shaughnessy Files

“TONY”

Here are my own remarks about Tony Malara.

Tony Malara was sui generis … unique and able to be defined only on his own terms. I never encountered an individual who wasn’t crazy about the guy.

Joe Reilly, Dan Rather, Charlie Osgood, and the great Mario Cuomo have spoken of him much more gracefully than I am able. Malara was a pure, natural force. As an emcee, he was one of the two or three best I’ve observed in front of a crowd. His talent at the podium was informed not alone by the rapier-sharp quickness of his wit but also by the genuine warmth of his marvelous personality.

Governor Cuomo and I used to kid him about the “great responsibility” he carried as the highest-ranking Italian in network TV. But no matter how far up he went, Tony never forgot who he was and where he came from.

As he achieved each high, new estate in a remarkable career, he always went home at night the same guy who came down from Watertown to charm, beguile, dazzle, and love us.

Tony did so much for the Broadcasters Foundation of America.

But his first and greatest love—professionally—was always the New York State Broadcasters Association.
