Johnny DiLoretto

Cinema Classis and Foodcast Co-Host

Johnny DiLoretto is a longtime Columbus media personality who has amused audiences since 1998 when he began writing irreverent movie reviews for The Other Paper. Shortly after that he made a distinct impression on local TV audiences when he became ABC 6 and FOX 28's nighttime entertainment reporter.

In 2006 Johnny turned viewers on to the many amazing people and places of central Ohio on the morning broadcast, Good Day Columbus, in his distinctly off-the-cuff style. Over the years, Johnny has taken great pride in co-hosting and co-producing both Cinema Classics and Foodcast for WCBE.
