Tony Lorino


Tony Lorino may not be the first guy you call when you need to replace a carburetor.  Or put new shingles on a house.  Or even hang a picture frame.  But, Tony’s got a myriad of crazy, hidden talents that we’re learning about more and more as he hosts afternoons on 99.7 The Point.

Born to a sweet, loving, LOUD Italian family in Wisconsin, Tony and his wife, Kate, came to Kansas City for her job in 2010.  Since then, they’ve made their home in Roeland Park, adopted their “son” Max from Wayside Waifs, and he’s begun to show off a few of his random qualities, including…
  • The Piano.  He’s played since he was 4, and after a few adult beverages, always ends up tickling the ivories when a piano is present.
  • Cooking.  Tony’s family is known to have more pies than people at most Thanksgiving gatherings (and it’s a BIG family), and he sometimes brings food for the staff that would make Rachel Ray jealous.
  • Musical Knowledge – If you’re playing Trivia, give Tony a call in the afternoon at 913/816-576-7997 to see if he can pinch hit on your team for the “music” section.  He has a Rainman-esque (and likely unnecessary) proficiency of the billboard charts.
…and something tells us, there’s some more random facts and figures he’ll start quoting someday.  Until then, he keeps himself busy running the behind-the-scenes goings on of 99.7 The Point as Program Director, and he’ll join you weekday afternoons from 2-7pm.
