Matthew Fraser has lived in France on and off over the past three decades. He first moved to Paris in the 1980s to complete a doctorate – and returned permanently to France in 2006. He is currently a professor at the American University of Paris, where he teaches courses on global media and politics, entertainment industry economics, history of journalism, and investigative reporting.

He subsequently was a correspondent in Paris and London for the Montreal Gazette, and later joined the National Post as a columnist writing about the entertainment industries. He was appointed Editor-in-Chief of the National Post and also co-hosted a national television show in Canada, “Inside Media”, on the public network, CBC Newsworld.
