Anthea Cannon is a community news journo in Melbourne’s inner west. Growing up in Perth with an accountant father, book keeper mother and actuary sister, she rebelled by venturing into the arts. As a cadet at the Albany Advertiser she successfully hounded the WA Government to put money into the seaside city before turning her attention to the misunderstood streets of Footscray. When she’s not talking to angry residents, crashing 100th birthdays and researching, she’s planning her next travel adventure.
Anthea Cannon is a former Melbourne journalist who recently traded hassling politicans and sitting in court for the wilds of Central and South America. She’s hurtled down the Bolivian Death Road, hiked the Inca Trail, exploded dynamite in a Argentinian silver mine, made far too many jokes about Fidel Castro in Cuba and caved with only a candle in Guatemala but she’s most afraid of having to get a real job again soon.
