Originally from the US east coast, Dave Anthony grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. Educated at Las Vegas High School and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), Dave studied journalism,
broadcasting and music education.
As a proficient sax player, the life of a musician began during college years at UNLV, followed by professional performances, co-founder of the Minnesota Music Academy in the 1980s, & eventual induction into the Las Vegas Rock Hall of Fame in 2011.
Dave's music career morphed into a career in radio broadcasting, as he quickly became a well known name as host of morning radio shows in Las Vegas, Denver, Minneapolis, and Tucson. He could be heard in other cities like San Francisco, Houston, Phoenix, Milwaukee, and Jacksonville on prime mid-day and afternoon radio shows.
Broadcast management soon beckoned and Dave became a very successful program director for companies like CBS, Metromedia, and Doubleday in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Denver, Las Vegas, Jacksonville, and Tucson.
