Capitol Weekly’s Top 100: Anthony York

26. Anthony York

Anthony York is a sort of renaissance man and has the resume to prove it. His latest role is senior communications adviser to Gavin Newsom, which means he advises the governor and top staff on dealing with the media. York was a key spokesman for the California Medical Association from 2019 to 2021, and president of his own Grizzly Bear Media from 2014 to 2021. He was a reporter with the Los Angeles Times from 2009 to 2014, and – wait for it – the editor of Capitol Weekly from 2005 to 2010, where he was instrumental in getting the Top 100 going. (If you don’t like the Top 100, send York your cards and letters. He’ll be delighted to get them). He was Washington correspondent for from 1999 to 2003, associate editor for California Journal from 1998 to 1999 and a reporter for McClatchy Newspapers/Capitol Alert from 1997 to 1998. He’s got family journalism chops, too: His dad, Arnold, who published the Malibu Times, was publisher of Capitol Weekly from 2005 to 2012.
