Trouble is His Business

Julian Sher
  is the Senior Producer of CBC's the fifth estate, Canada's premier investigative TV program.

An award-winning investigative journalist in TV, print, radio and on the Web, he is a veteran TV documentary writer and director as well as an accomplished newsroom trainer and the author of six widely-acclaimed books. He was an investigative journalist for Canada's two leading newspapers, The Toronto Star and the The Globe and Mail.

His latest book is Somebody's Daughter: The Hidden Story of America's Prostituted Children and The Battle to Save Them. Publisher's Weekly called the book "a thorough, deeply affecting study … [that] strikes a rare balance between revealing trauma and hope."

His previous 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.

Julian wrote and directed a New York Times-CBC TV investigation called "Nuclear Jihad" which won the duPont-Columbia University Award, the broadcast equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, in 2006.

He created JournalismNet, a comprehensive guide to mastering the web as an investigative tool. He speaks at conferences around the world and can be contacted here for appearances.
