Columnist and Feature writer

Stephen Brunt is a former reporter, columnist and feature writer for The Globe and Mail. He started at The Globe as an intern in 1982, after attending journalism school at the University of Western Ontario. He then worked in news, covering the 1984 election, and began to write for the sports section in 1985.

His 1988 series on negligence and corruption in boxing won him the Michener award for public service journalism. In 1989, he became a sports columnist.

Nominated for several National Newspaper Awards, Stephen is also the author of seven books: including Facing Ali, which in addition to Canada was published in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia and Norway, and was named one of the ten best sports books of the year by Sports Illustrated. His book Searching For Bobby Orr was a number one national bestseller and Gretzky's Tears, a look at the trade that changed hockey, was published in the fall of 2009.
