Overview Edit

Tony Vincenzo is a newspaper editor employed by Independent News Service out of Chicago, Illinois. He is the bellicose supervisor of sensationalistic reporter Carl Kolchak and seems to be one of the only people willing to tolerate the investigator's maverick antics, despite their arguments. Vincenzo has a grudging respect for Kolchak's reporting skills, but often finds himself caught between Kolchak's zeal and his own management responsibilities. Vincenzo's hot temper often negatively impacts his blood pressure and digestion and he sometimes laments that he did not go into his family's Venetian blinds business.
