Director of Digital Content
Sinclair Broadcast Group

Manny Fantis has been a broadcaster for half of his life. He began his career in Salisbury, Md. as a radio personality and a studio technician at a local television station in the mid-90's. He then attended the University of Maryland, where he received his Bachelor's Degree in Journalism. He also won a regional Emmy Award and multiple AP Awards.

After graduating UMD and getting on the air for a few years, Manny realized his talents were better served in the "decision making" parts of the newsroom, so he moved on to the assignment desk. That was the best move he ever made for his career because, within two years, Manny was named News Director at KTVL in Medford, Oregon. Manny lead the team to ratings successes that the station hadn't seen in years. He also changed the way the station covered online/mobile and social stories.

Manny moved to DC with his wife and took the helm as WUSA9's Digital – Mobile – Social Director. He, his wife and son live in Alexandria, Va. They enjoy taking photos, swimming and just relaxing on their days off.
