Kelvin MacKenzie’s onslaught on the media industry began as a 17 year-old reporter on a local news agency in South-East London. He quickly moved on to work at 'The Birmingham Post' before joining the nationals, working on 'The Daily Express' and 'The Sun' where he became an infamous tabloid legend. Before rising to the top in the UK, Kelvin was given the job of managing editor of 'The New York Post', which he held from 1978 until 1980. His return to Thatcher’s Britain saw him work as night editor of 'The Sun', then 'The Express', before he embarked on the 12-year career as The Sun’s Editor – which brought the world headlines such as “Gotcha” and “Freddie Starr ate my hamster”.
Kelvin’s brief reign as managing director of BSkyB – from January to July 1994 – was followed by a four-year stint as managing director of Mirror Television, which invented 'Topless Darts' on L!ve TV. He was the chairman and chief executive of The Wireless Group from 1998-2005 and wrote a regular column for the 'Daily Mail'.
