Tony Kovaleski Wiki

Tony Kovaleski, born Anthony Carl is an American investigative reporter currently working at Denver ABC Scripps’ KMGH-Channel 7.

Tony Kovaleski Biography

Previously Kovaleski worked at NBC Bay Area, KNTV in the San Francisco Bay Area. From 2001 to 2011, he was the investigative reporter at KMGH-TV in Denver, Colorado.

He graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. He is a faculty member of the National Center for Courts and Media with the University of Nevada’s Reynolds School of Journalism and is also a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), the professional organization for investigative journalists.

Kovaleski joined the Investigative Team of the NBC Bay Area in December 2011. His most recent work includes exposing problems at sporting venues across California. His investigations into the VTA Light Rail system of Santa Clara County have exposed abnormally high rates of fair evasion.

His second report showed that the light rail system was still unable to provide its riders with credit card readers after two years. In addition, his report on the mechanical breakdowns of a major East Bay school bus provider alerted several East Bay school districts to a history of unreported problems.

In the summer of 2008, while at KMGH-TV in Denver, Kovaleski aired a series of stories that chronicled problems with Denver’s emergency ambulance service, including response times that were nearly double the national standard.

The stories also showed that there was no permanently stationed an ambulance at Denver International Airport even though the facility was more than twenty miles from the city center.

More than 100 people were on Continental Airlines Flight 1404 in December 2008 when the pilot lost control. The aircraft slid off Runway 34 Right and burst into flames during take-off. Kovaleski obtained ambulance response records showing the first emergency ambulance needed 33 minutes to reach the scene.

The investigative documentary “33 Minutes to 34 Right” aired in March 2009 and led to significant changes in Denver’s ambulance procedures and policies including the permanent assignment of an ambulance at DIA.

In May 2010, Kovaleski reported accepting gifts and an all-expense-paid trip to Pebble Beach on several state-appointed board members of Pinnacol Assurance. The board was tasked with overseeing Pinnacol Assurance including the expenditure of the agency.

Kovaleski’s investigation forced the board to be revised, including the appointment of a new president and the implementation of strict travel and gift regulations accepted by board members.

Kovaleski’s source-based investigative reporting landed interviews with four members of Denver’s FBI that produced a look inside the federal investigation and conviction of admitted terrorist Najibullah Zazi. The 30-minute documentary provided insight into how a national terror plot targeting New York City was unraveled by the Denver FBI office.

His reporting and investigations have been featured on CNN, ABC’s Good Morning America, ABCs “20/20” and CNN’s “Larry King Live.”
