The Crew

 

Here’s a list of our current “in studio” regulars. Let us know if we’re missing any of your favorite facts about our friends. #JoinTheConversation.

 

Mr. Tony—the orange one (Satchmo and TKStackMoney); constant recipient of bites from Chessie; will likely turn any news event into a pertinent story about his life.

@[could not be found] Social Media? That doesn’t sound like a good idea.

Nigel—like the monoliths of Stonehenge, nobody knows how or, more importantly, why Nigel is here. Raised in the streets of London, he worked as a chimney sweep as a child, and then later in the coal mines of Northern England. In the US illegally, he hopes one day to marry a Kardashian to attain citizenship.

Gary Braun—Super G (SG3)—started with the show in the 90s and despite a few short breaks, never seems to be able to leave; maintains a real job outside of the show (Braun Film & Video, Inc.); struggles with basic math. #GaryMath

@BraunFilm

Chris Cillizza—political writer and blogger for The Washington Post; product of a Connecticut prep school education (alumnus of the Loomis Chafee School for the Rich); swam in Diana Ross’s pool; pained Hoya Saxa fan; prefers to sit in the #SeatsofChrisCillizza behind home plate at Washington Nationals games.

@TheFix

Howard Fineman—Pittsburgh’s own!; the intergalactic editor of The Huffington Post; charter member of The Classics; father of celebrity-intern, Nick Fineman; sneaky good at political impersonations.

 @howardfineman

Torie Clarke—raises her hand to ask questions; brings notecards as she did for famous politicians she prepped; adds the ever important “mom factor” to all discussions.

@TorieClarkeSAP

David Aldridge—DA—born and raised in Washington DC; product of DeMatha High School and THE American University; currently works as a reporter for the Turner networks; has worked with Tony for nearly thirty years and is still totally dismissive of most of his opinions; inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in September 2016 but reluctant to brag about it on air.

@daldridgetnt

Liz Clarke—writes mainly about the Redskins for The Washington Post but also covers tennis, soccer and the Olympics (ask her about her luggage in Rio); quite possibly the #1 Springsteen fan; her sighs will melt your heart; so literate you can almost see her build her sentences like an architect of brilliance.

@lizclarketweet

 Jeanne McManus—Tony’s long-time editor through thick and thin at The Washington Post; a cook, painter and one of the great barmaids in Vermont history; the only one who can tell Tony when he’s full of it; cannot stay away from bacon sandwiches.

Leon Harris—the best pipes in the business; talks about wanting to play golf but refuses to get out on the course with Mr. Tony.

@leonharrisABC7

Michael Kornheiser—a masculine child who keeps his dad fed for the week with his grilling; golf fanatic who sneaks photos of Mr. Tony on the links; actual local weather enthusiast. #TellMichael

@MKornheiser

 

Let’s pour one out for our recently departed colleague, Kip Sheeman (@kevins980), whose forecasts of “something interesting” on the horizon still send shivers down Mr. Tony’s spine.
