Industry Achiever: Zev Singer

Ottawa (Ontario, Canada) Citizen reporter Zev Singer was on his way to a story assignment when he spotted a familiar-looking person sitting at a bus stop. It was 65-year-old William Dupon, who had been reported missing by his family.

Singer said he recognized the man from the police’s missing persons report and approached him. After confirming it was Dupon, Singer drove the man to the police station where he was reunited with his family.

Although people called Singer a hero, he told Ottawa Citizen senior online editor Melanie Coulson, “I chose to drive him myself … (so) I could also collect more material for a story that way. I don’t think that makes me a villain either. Just tempers the case with a bit of journalism reality.”
