Photo by Anne C. Savage Yesterday morning I got a text from my friend Stephanie White that said, simply, “Sad news about Tony.” I hadn’t heard any news but I knew which “Tony” she meant. I know several Tonys but THE Tony is and has always been Tony Trupiano. I went to Facebook and quickly saw what I was terrified […]Read more ›
Tag: Tony Trupiano
Anyone who has read Eclectablog for any amount of time knows Eclectablogger Tony Trupiano. But Tony has been far more than an Eclectablogger in his day. He had nationally-syndicated radio show, another radio show based out of Detroit, and he’s been a proud proponent and activist on the behalf of working people and laborers for many, many years. Simply put, […]Read more ›
Let me say up front that this is NOT about sympathy, empathy, or sorrow. In fact, it is about an internal journey that has produced a myriad of feelings and explorations. This is about me and only me, so see that as you will, but as I have gone through about fifteen drafts of the post-election column I intended to […]Read more ›
PHOTOS: The 2nd Annual Eclectafundraiser with special guest John Dingell, the newly-crowned #DeanOfTwitter
Last night’s 2nd Annual Eclectafundraiser is in the can and, in my opinion, it simply could not have gone better. We had well over 100 folks come by, the beer lasted until the very end, and we didn’t run out of Eclectagrog beer glasses to give away. Oh, yeah. This happened, too: Yes, history was made when, after being crowned […]Read more ›
I am excited to announce the latest addition to our team at Eclectablog, my dear friend Tony Trupiano. I first met Tony shortly after he returned to the radio airwaves after an unsuccessful run to unseat Thad McCotter in Congress. Tony’s morning radio show, First Shift with Tony Trupiano, was a progressive breath of fresh air amidst the plethora of […]Read more ›

Run, Tony, run! Early last month, I broke the news that radio show host Tony Trupiano was considering leaving the radio and running for the State House Representative in the 13th House District. It is now confirmed: Tony WILL be running for this strongly Democratic seat and will announce his candidacy on Monday Allen Park Civic Arena at 7:00 p.m. […]Read more ›
Gary Abud, Jr., and I joined Tony for new episodes of his podcast series, to educate the public on issues of importance to each of us. Earlier this week, Tony Trupiano was kind enough to invite two members of Team Eclectablog to speak with him on his new podcast series. In our podcast, Tony and I discussed the new abortion […]Read more ›
As i mentioned last week, radio show host extraordinaire Tony Trupiano is leaning “more than 90%” toward a run for the 13th district state house seat. Because of this, he has not resumed his radio program Night Shift with Tony Trupiano. That hasn’t stopped our intrepid broadcaster, however and he has continued doing podcasts.
The podcast format has been a joy because it allows for more relaxed conversations than the rigid 30-minute radio segments offer, plus they aren’t interrupted by a commercial break.

Today’s podcast is a conversation between Tony Trupiano and Eclectablogger Amy Lynn Smith. They discuss the Right to Life’s odious petition drive to force women to purchase a separate rider on their health insurance to cover safe, legal abortions. It’s been called the “Plan Ahead for Your Abortion” law or the “Rape Insurance” law because it forces women to literally […]Read more ›
I am going to start posting all of Tony Trupiano’s podcasts since they really are terrific and, due to his potential run for office, he may no longer be on the air with his radio show any longer. Today’s podcast happens to be with moi. Tony and I talked about Rand Paul’s insulting visit to Detroit, the Education Achievement Authority, […]Read more ›
