Welcome to Toryville! Tory Flowers Stagnaro is a producer who has been working in television and video production work for over twenty-five years. She has worked for CNN, ABC and started her own production company to provide videos for non-profit organizations and for-profit companies and to produce live shots for network television.
Tory attended Gettysburg College and majored in Political Science and Communications. She interned with CNNI in London and KYW in Philadelphia while in college and then moved to Washington, D.C. in 1997. It was there that she started her career with CNN and worked on the show Inside Politics with Judy Woodruff and Bernard Shaw. She covered the 2000 presidential election and September 11th for CNN. She moved home to Philadelphia in 2003 and continues to freelance for CNN Special Events and has covered the 2015 Pope’s trip to the World Meeting of Families, the 2016 Democratic Convention, the 2021 and 2022 July 4th Special Coverage, and the most recent Pennsylvania primary with Wolf Blitzer, Michael Smerconish, and Kasie Hunt.
Tory’s non-profit clients have included The Connelly Foundation, Steppingstones/Philadelphia Futures, and Horizons. She also produced stewardship videos for The Episcopal Academy.
With years of interview experience from talking to political candidates to students to CEOs, Tory puts her clients at ease in front of the camera. She likes to talk to people and hear their stories. Tory’s interviews feel more like a conversation with her clients than an on-camera interview and that is because she takes the time to get to know her clients. She works with clients from start to finish – from proposal to final edit – giving detailed updates throughout the process.
Tory reconnected with her now business partner Dax Roggio in 2020. Tory and Dax are both creatives that have known each other for over 30 years and closely collaborate on all of their projects. Tory provides the business side of the project with proposals, budgets, logistics, and research while Dax provides the technical side with shooting and editing.
