Broadcasting has been a natural "pick-up" for Angelo Pontello. As a senior in high school in 2011, he first filmed his father's recreational hockey games to help his dad improve his play. The league quickly took notice, and asked Pontello to film all the league games. Soon after, Pontello implemented commentary and multiple personalities to make games more enjoyable and entertaining to watch. This lead to collegiate, broadcasting opportunities at the NCAA Division II level as well as NAIA.
At Saint Leo University, Pontello was named color commentator for women's soccer and play-by-play announcer for softball. Pontello also made appearances on Saint Leo's basketball pregame reports. At West Texas A&M University, Pontello not only called games for the Buffs and Lady Buffs, but was also responsible for running the WT Sports Network production for all sports. Pontello specifically called games for Women's Soccer, Women's Basketball, and Softball, as well as color commentary for Men's Basketball and Men's Soccer.
By the time he acquired both a Bachelor's and Master's degrees, Pontello had broadcast over 1000 games, including hockey, soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball.
Today, Pontello continues to add to his repertoire by building his own broadcasting network (Pontello Broadcasting Network), covering the TGH Iceplex's Over 50 Hockey League while producing freelance videography work for teams and clients.
