He began his career in journalism in 1968, when he joined Fleet Street as a trainee at The Guardian. He was City Editor of The Times between 1981 and 1983, and City Editor of The Evening Standard from 1984 to 1989.

Anthony has also worked for The Observer, The Daily Mail and The Sunday Express. He was for five years Editor of Accountancy Age and was also posted in New York, where for three years he was Business Correspondent for the London Sunday Times before returning to London in 1981.

Anthony is unusual in that as well as being a journalist he has had a successful business career, setting up several successful publishing and entertainment companies, serving on the boards of a management consultancy, a global media group, an insurance company, a pension fund management company and acting for six years as chief executive of the Evening Standard in the most successful period in its history.
