About Tony Keller

 I'm the editorial page editor of The Globe and Mail.

Prior to rejoining The Globe in 2013, I was an anchor on BNN, Canada's Business News Network.

In more than 20 years in journalism, I've been an editorial writer and columnist for The Globe and Mail; columnist for the Toronto Star, Report on Business Magazine and Toronto Life; managing editor of Maclean's; and editor of The Financial Post Magazine. I've also been an on-air essayist for TVO's "The Agenda with Steve Paikin."

From 2006 to 2009, I was Maclean’s managing editor and associate publisher for special projects, in charge of the magazine’s market-leading higher education franchise. I also created Canada’s first online magazine of higher education advice, information and news.

From 1999 to 2004, I was editor of the Financial Post Magazine. At the time, it was Canada’s best-read business magazine, with more than 1.5 million readers. I also helped to create and served as rédacteur en chef of a French-language spin-off, le Financial Post, a partnership with Montreal’s La Presse.

I began my career at The Globe and Mail in 1991, as a member of the paper's editorial board. 

In 1997 and 2014, I was nominated for the National Newspaper Award for editorial writing.

A bilingual (albeit less so every day) Montrealer who has lived in Toronto for two decades, I hold a B.A. (history and political science) from Duke and a Master of Studies in Law from Yale.

I have also been a teaching fellow with the Cambodia Genocide Project (1995), a visiting fellow at the Faculty of Law of the University of Toronto (2004-05) and an executive fellow at The Mowat Centre for Policy Innovation (2010-11).

I ran track at Duke, but not long after graduation, it dawned on me that running is a sport with a poor risk/return profile, and a terrible pain/pleasure ratio. I decided to switch to a pass time that offers nothing but joy, and where every moment is upside.

All things considered, I'd rather be playing hockey right now.
