Temur Durrani is a national reporter for The Globe and Mail, focusing on Manitoba. He is also the host of Better For It, a Globe business podcast about how our failures shape us.

Previously, he was a technology reporter for The Globe’s Report on Business, based in Toronto. In that role, he broke news and wrote extensively about Canadian firms like Shopify, turbulence in global cryptocurrency markets, privacy violations, the impact of Big Tech on the country, and hacks at major companies. He’d also ended up on stage with Beyoncé.

A globe-trotting newshound hailing from British Columbia, Temur has covered protests in Hong Kong, graffiti art in India and Pakistan, crashes in Alaska, crime in the GTA, federal politics in Ottawa, small business in the Maritimes, finance on the Prairies, and even the Raptors’ historic run to the NBA final. He is now stationed in Winnipeg.

Before joining The Globe in February of 2022, Temur worked at BNN Bloomberg, where he reported investigative stories and business features for broadcast and digital audiences. Prior to that, he was a staffer at the Winnipeg Free Press, the Toronto Star, iPolitics (Ottawa), and the New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal.

A juror since 2021 for the annual Dalton Camp Award, which grants young writers with a $10,000 prize for the best essay on the link between media and democracy, Temur frequently appears on live-audience, TV and radio panels to provide news analysis.

He speaks in six languages fluently or conversationally (guess which ones!), takes his caffeinated beverages very seriously, and loves a good meme.
