Meet the team in charge of La Salle University’s educational access cable TV station.
Station manager Tonya Ellis is responsible for La Salle TV’s daily operations along with all show production. Having a full-time staff member allows students to concentrate on their perfecting skills instead of worrying about repairing equipment and programming shows.
Once a student crewmember herself, Tonya graduated with a B.A. from La Salle’s Communication and English departments. After working at an advertising agency for a couple years, she enthusiastically returned to her alma mater as LTV’s general manager. While rebuilding the station, she also earned her M.A. in Professional Communication.
If she’s not editing or working in the studio, Tonya can probably be found in the classroom where she teaches media production.
Tonya lives in Bucks County with her family and their assortment of obnoxious pets.

Hello, my name is Tyler Pitis. I’m a senior communication major with a minor in Political Science. I am a producer on SportsTalk Philadelphia, but you will almost never see me on desk because cameras scare me (which is why I like to stay behind them.) My interests include yelling at people about their sports opinions, making Josh Abrams angry, and La Salle TV Hall-of-Famer Cali Montana.
