Temur Durrani is a technology reporter for the Report on Business at The Globe and Mail, based in Toronto.
His coverage focuses on technology news and issues related to cryptocurrencies, the presence of “Big Tech” in Canada, the evolution of Web3, and the country’s burgeoning creator economy.
Temur joined The Globe in early 2022 after most recently working at BNN Bloomberg, where he reported national enterprise stories and business features for broadcast and digital audiences. Prior to that, he was a reporter at The Winnipeg Free Press, The Toronto Star, iPolitics (Ottawa) and the New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal. He’s also written for Maclean’s Magazine, The Financial Post and The Hamilton Spectator.
A globe-trotting newshound originally 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.
A juror for the 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 and broadcast panels to provide analysis about the Canadian economy.
He speaks six languages fluently or conversationally (guess which ones!) and loves a good meme, especially before that meme becomes a fungible or non-fungible token.
