About

TED ANTHONY

I tell stories. Stories about you and me and us, about our country and our world and the strange and meaningful tapestry of human experience. I tell stories about things that connect with each other unexpectedly, and about how the most insignificant details in our surroundings can, when poked at, turn out to mean everything. Once I wrote an entire book about a single song.

I do other things, too. Right now I am the director of digital innovation for The Associated Press, working on all kinds of interesting new things at the intersection of storytelling and new media. As a leader in AP's news operation for 15 years and a correspondent for 10 more before that, I have tried to bring an unerring sense of storytelling — in any form, in any fashion, on any platform — into our journalism as our industry changes fundamentally and shifts onto exciting and disruptive new platforms. Along the way, I teach and train and mentor and speak about journalism and why it must remain a fundamental and relevant part of the world during an uncertain era.

I also take photographs. See some of them on Instagram by clicking the link in this section, and more of them here.
