The Bio

Julian Sher is an award-winning investigative journalist in print, TV, radio, and on the Web. He is a veteran TV documentary writer and director, a newsroom trainer and the author of five international best-selling books.

His latest book, 'Caught in the Web: Inside the Police Hunt to Rescue Children from Online Predators' has been hailed by reviewers as "riveting" "eye-opening and "gripping." His writings on child abuse have appeared on the front page of the New York Times, the cover of Maclean's magazine and the OpEd page of USA Today. Coming in January, 2011 from Chicago Review Press is his latest investiative work: Somebody's Daughter: The Hidden Story of Prostituted Children in America and The Battle to Save Them.

His books on crime and the justice system have been translated into six languages and sold in eight countries. His book 'Until You are Dead' about Canada's most famous murder case details the investigation that helped Steven Truscott clear his name almost 50 years after he was nearly hanged as a boy.

Julian wrote and directed a New York Times-CBC TV investigation called 'Nuclear Jihad' which won the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award, the broadcast equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, in 2006. In 2007 he was on assignment in Iraq for the New York Times and the CBC to produce the documentary, 'The Battle for Baghdad.' In 2008, he investigated the Taliban in Afghanistan for a two-hour CBC special, 'Afghanistan: Between Hope and Fear'.

Now, he's applied all that experience to his latest project - an episode of the CBC's 'Love, Hate and Propaganda', hosted by our very own Strombo.
