Personal Profile

Anthony Dowling

Anthony was born in St. Petersburg, FL. and raised in Hendersonville, NC. He always says he has had the best of both worlds – the beach and the mountains. Graduating from Hendersonville High School in 1981, Anthony then proceeded directly to Western Carolina University and graduated in 1985 with a BS in Political Science.

After college, Anthony worked at Electronic Data Systems (EDS) for 7 years. EDS grounded Mr. Dowling in the world of corporate America and provided him the opportunity to observe the proper way to structure a large company. Wanting a change of pace, Anthony accepted a job with Belk Stores as a Tommy Hilfiger salesman. At Belk, he gained invaluable experience in sales and marketing. After 4 years, Anthony accepted another mainframe computer position with a major textile company headquartered in Durham, NC.

In 1999, Anthony started his television and film career with Lance Britt and Gus Langdale when they founded Eno River Media Production.

In March 2000, Anthony led the team effort to launch the show Insight Durham at the Durham Public Access Station. Once successful, the show was cablecast at Chapel Hill’s public access station in 2002. Anthony spearheaded the task of growing ERMP from 6 volunteers in 2000 to 70 volunteers in 2004. In 2003, with more volunteers and technical assistance, Anthony broached the idea of Barchords, a half hour rock music show. In 2003, Anthony led the way for Barchords to expand to Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and in 2004 Greensboro. Barchords has been a nominee finalist in the Chapel Hill Burke Awards in 2004 and 2005.

In 2003 and 2004 Anthony applied for and won the Duke University Fuqua School of Business Small Business Assistance Award. The completed study conducted by 6 Duke University School of Business students was presented to ERMP in April 2004. This study is the blue print for future ERMP growth.

In 2004, Anthony initiated the Film Division of ERMP.
