My name is Bill Dunphy, I’m a journalist, a trainer, a web evangelist to the newspaper world. On my good days I’m a writer.
I’ve worked at community papers and big city dailies as a typesetter/reporter, editor, columnist, satirist, investigative reporter, and training manager.
I’ve received awards (provincially and nationally) mostly for my investigative reporting and writing, and spoken at conferences and seminars for The American Press Institute, The Canadian Newspaper Association, The Ontario Community Newspaper Association and at Ryerson University’s Wordstock.
I launched and ran a digital/web tech training school for my news chain (500 students, 29 teachers), was part of a small team that built and installed a new CMS across the Toronto Star newspaper chain.
After two years on the web team, I've returned to crime and justice reporting with an emphasis on investigations and policing issues.
