Ken Anthony has been a Rock music lover since he wore out the grooves on the first Led Zeppelin album. A native of the Bay Area, Ken started his radio career in San Jose in the 80's, working at the legendary KSJO/San Jose as their afternoon rock jock and eventually Music Director and Program Director.
Anthony left KSJO in late 1988 and spent a few years rocking in Texas for KISS/San Antonio and KLOL/Houston. He found his way to Southern California in 1991 when he was hired to return to his native California to take on the #1 rock programming job in America- KLOS/Los Angeles.
Anthony successfully directed KLOS for two years and then he brought Alternative radio to St. Louis with the creation and launching of KPNT (The Point)/St. Louis. The Point has become a franchise radio station in the Midwest. Anthony returned to Los Angeles in 1994 to program Classic Rock KLSX until they flipped to a Talk format in 1995.
The following year, Anthony formed Radio Think Tank, a consulting and marketing company that worked with some of the top Rock based radio stations in the country. In addition to running Radio Think Tank, in 2004, Anthony was named Rock Editor of the leading industry trade publication Radio & Records.
In August of 2012, Anthony joined AllAccess.com as Rock Editor of the world's #1 destination for news and info for the radio and record industry. In his role as Rock Editor, Anthony works with Rock Radio stations as well as major and independent Rock labels to help maintain and strengthen the Rock format for listeners across the U.S. and Canada.
In addition to his duties at All Access, in 2015 Anthony joined the air staff at KLOS/Los Angeles for weekends and fill-in until late 2019, and in 2016 added weekend/fill-in shifts in his hometown Bay Area for KSAN (107.7 The Bone)/San Francisco where he still rocks today!
