Tony Miles (journalist)

Anthony John Miles (18 July 1930 – 14 April 2018), better known as Tony Miles, was a British newspaper editor.

Miles grew up in High Wycombe. After attending the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe from 1942 to 1946,[1] he worked on the Middlesex Advertiser, Nottingham Guardian and Evening Argus, before joining the Daily Mirror in 1954, as a feature writer. In 1966, he was appointed as an assistant editor, then the following year as associate editor, before becoming overall editor of the newspaper in 1971.[2]

Miles held the editorship for three years, following which he was appointed as Editorial Director of the Mirror Group, for a few years also serving as its chairman. He also sat on the Press Council and served as a director of Reuters. In 1984, he stood down from his remaining British posts, unhappy with Robert Maxwell's control of the Mirror,[3] and moved to the United States, where he became an Executive Publisher with the Globe Communications Corporation, publisher of the National Examiner, until the early 1990s.[2]

Miles died at the age of 87 on 14 April 2018 at Highgate Nursing Home, London.
