Paul Johnson

Paul Johnson was Global National‘s Asia correspondent, based in Beijing.  Prior to that post, he spent several years at our Washington, D.C. bureau, covering news from Capitol Hill, across the U.S. and around the world.

Paul’s journalism career began more than 20 years ago, when he was a writer for The Peak newspaper at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C.  Over the years, he has reported from the wars in Bosnia and Afghanistan, hurricanes on the Gulf Coast, politics in Hong Kong, and school shootings in the U.S.  Paul has even had the opportunity to interview icons from James Brown to George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

“But what’s most important, and what I think about most, is my next story” he says. “I want anyone to contact me if they think they have a story to tell.” You can tweet Paul: @PJohnsonGlobal.

Paul is also a musician and documentary filmmaker.
