Steve Anthony

Steve Anthony is an award winning Canadian radio and television broadcaster and host, was a founding VJ of MuchMusic, which, along with MTV, pioneered music-video television worldwide. As host of “CP24 Breakfast”, Steve and the “Breakfast” team were able to launch the show against the decades-long dominance of CITYTV’s Breakfast Television and, by audience numbers, take it to the #1 Morning TV show in Canada. In August 2018, after learning of the downfall of so many “mom and pop” businesses over the years, Steve decided to join Direct Global / Direct Co-ops in their efforts to “change the world” and save the backbone of every community: its small businesses.

Donald Trump’s signature economic initiative was a giant tax cut for big corporations & the wealthy. He promised it would spur economic growth and boost the middle class.
