Dunn attended Dudley Grammar School, then started his journalistic career on the Dudley Herald. In 1977, he moved to the Birmingham Evening Mail, then the Birmingham Post, and the Daily Mail. After a period as a freelance, he joined The Sun in 1983, as the papers' New York correspondent.

He left the News International group in 1991 to take up a post as Editor of Today, where he spent two years, before moving to become Editor of the Boston Herald, and almost immediately Editor-in-Chief of the New York Daily News. In 1996, he moved on to Channel One Television, then worked for DMG New Media and DMG Front of Mind. In 2003, he again became Editor-in-Chief of the New York Daily News,[2] leaving in 2010 after his wife, Debbie Hickman, had become ill with cancer.[3] Hickman died in January 2014.[1]
