Steve LadurantayeSteve Ladurantaye is the Globe and Mail’s media reporter. In this role, he spends most of his time talking to the top media minds in the country – broadcast executives, newspaper publishers, start-up entrepreneurs, digital innovators.

His work appears across all of the national newspaper’s sections, and he also stars in a weekly web video produced by the paper that explores Canadian media issues and regularly appears on conventional television programs such as CTV’s Economix Panel and Canada AM.

He also spends a great deal of time tweeting the bits of news that don’t fit into his stories, and is convinced that we are all just one tweet away from being fired (@sladurantaye).

He’s been nominated for two National Newspaper Awards, the highest honour in Canadian journalism. He won once, in the explanatory journalism category for a story he wrote that detailed the costs, personal and financial, associated with a nasty crash on Canada’s busiest highway.

Prior to the Globe he was a city editor at Peterborough Examiner and Kingston Whig-Standard, editor of the Ottawa Business Journal and a cop reporter at the Ottawa Sun. He also used his Commodore 64 to make his own clip-art heavy newspapers, but sadly this was before anyone had thought to invent paywalls. Or the Internet.
