Toby Motyka anchors the weekend sportscasts for 13WHAM ABC and Fox Rochester.
A near lifelong New Yorker, Toby was born in New York City before moving with his family to Binghamton when he was six years old . The only time he lived outside of the Empire State was during his four years at Mansfield University in Pennsylvania, where he earned his bachelor's degree in communications with a dual emphasis in broadcasting and journalism.
Prior to joining the 13 WHAM Sports team in October, 2010, Toby served as the Sports Director at WENY-TV in Elmira for two years. While in the Twin Tiers, he had the opportunity to cover a wide variety of events, including the LPGA Corning Classic, NASCAR and INDY Car racing at Watkins Glen, minor league baseball and hockey, as well as collegiate and high school athletics.
Toby grew up playing baseball and tennis, but has developed minor obsessions with lacrosse and hockey since moving to Western New York. A lifelong Giants fan, hes even learned to love the Buffalo Bills.
Toby, his wife and daughter are happy to now call Rochester home.
In addition to your weekend highlights, Toby hopes to bring you the stories about the players and people that make it all happen. If you have a story idea, please get in touch with him.
