DIRECTOR OF CONTENT & BRANDING
Manny Fantis is the Director of Content and Branding for Circa and leads the daily operations of the content team while wearing a second hat as the Digital Content Director for Sinclair Broadcast Group.
Manny grew up in Brooklyn, NY, where he learned how to tell people's stories by observing the daily struggle in the big city.
Earlier in his career, he worked as an on-air reporter for several local television stations, covering everything from terror attacks to Hurricane Katrina. He then moved to the assignment desk, where he realized he wanted to become a news manager. That's when he took the job as the news director at KTVL in Medford, OR.
Before joining Sinclair Broadcast Group, he was as the Digital-Mobile-Social Director at WUSA9 in Washington D.C.
In May of 2015, Manny completed the year-long "Broadcast Leadership Training" course at the National Association for Broadcasters.
In his free time, he likes to spend most of his time with his wife and his two sons in Bethesda, Md. He’s also proud to be a University of Maryland graduate. Go Terps!
