Anthony Firetto .. Nino Firetto


Thank you for dropping by.  Do you remember that chap, on TV, with the ‘mullet’ back in the eighties?  Not the blonde one…but the one with dark hair doing the children’s TV show’s.  This website may jog your memory if you are old enough.

I have been..

A television Presenter, Columnist, Journalist, a Radio Host and an awful actor (blame the Director).  The national newspapers, at the time, had a lot of fun pulling me down with silly ‘Naughty Nino’ headlines.  I did not help matters by playing up to the press, winding them up was bringing me down.  I was just adding fuel to the fire.
For the record Oscar Wilde’s quote “All publicity is good publicity, as long as they spell your name right” is a load of bollocks.  Now all that seems a million years ago.

Above is a recent photo of me, taken at just after 2.30 pm and in front of a white door.

So what am I doing now?  Well since closing the door on the television work and leaving good Ol Blighty behind, I find myself living the dream in sunny California.

After years of clinging to hope for another bite of the TV show cherry I accepted it was over and it was time to move on.

San Francisco. is now my home and I spend most my  days sharing its’ sights to visitors from around the world.  I am happier than ever.
My interest in American history has taken me down a new path.  I now find myself working as a tour guide /Operator.   I show people the beautiful historic bay area and I  share it’s stories.  I get to introduce lots of wonderful curious people around wine country (Napa and Sonoma).
I fell in love with mother nature again.  Showing off the majestic Redwood Trees in Muir Woods and spending time in Yosemite National Park.

I still dabble in the media.  In fact I can still be heard on Radio Exe at the weekend.  For a while there I had my own radio station.  It was fun but it became a chore.

Well that’s me in a few paragraphs.  How is life treating you?  What have you been up to?  Let’s all meet up at your place, after work, for a cuppa tea.  Maybe you can fill in those blank years for me.


Pictured below is a mini me, a budding young Television Gameshow Host / Radio Presenter and a Tour Guide.  Stay in touch.  If you are on social media please take the time to follow me on Twitter.  Twitter is a good place to contact me, via their direct messaging.



Yes, here I am as an adorable Television toddler.
On the steps of  my home at 111 Cromwell Road in Bristol.
Actually, I am aged 15 years in this shot…(I always looked young).
