Miro Cernetig

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Miro Cernetig is currently the New York bureau chief for The Globe and Mail, covering the United States, Wall Street and the United Nations.

From 1998 to 2001 he was the newspaper's bureau chief in Beijing, writing on political and cultural affairs in China and Asia. Before that, Mr. Cernetig was The Globe and Mail's Vancouver bureau chief and also its Alberta bureau chief, covering national and provincial politics across Canada. He has also traveled extensively through the high arctic, reporting on the U.S, Russian and Canadian North.

Nominated for three National Newspaper Awards, Mr. Cernetig was awarded the 2001 NNA for international reporting. He is also the recipient of two Western Magazine Awards and was author of an essay that was nominated for a 2001 National Magazine Award.

In addition to writing for The Globe and Mail and other international publications, he has also contributed to the university history book A Passion For Identity.

From 1997 to 2001, Mr. Cernetig also wrote and directed three award-wining, hour-long documentaries that premiered on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and were later re-broadcast in dozens of other countries. They are: Castro's Gold, a look at attempts to salvage sunken galleons in Cuba; Polar Bear Safari: Millionaires and Mukluks, a voyage with modern-day polar bear hunters; and Juggling Dreams, about a Cirque de Soleil circus camp in Mongolia to help take children out of the sewers of Ulan Bator.
