About Us

Peter Paul was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He has many interests including aviation, travel, sports and covering high-profile events for his website. He started Peter Paul Media as an idea shortly after September 11, 2001 and launched it officially in 2009.

One of the first events we covered was the tragic death of pop star Michael Jackson. On June 25, 2009, we received word that the most famous pop star on Earth had been rushed to hospital in Los Angeles. As news agencies struggled to confirm later reports that he had died, we became one of the first to speak to the Chief Coroner of Los Angeles, who later confirmed Jackson’s death.

Since then, Peter Paul Media has developed an influential presence on social media. Our Twitter account is followed back by many high-profile accounts like the Associated Press, CNN, CBS, Global News Toronto,  Toronto Police and the CBC to name a few. Our updates have up to 95,000 unique impressions in our busy months and thousands at the least.

“My whole life changed on 9/11. I became more self-aware of things directly around me and, more importantly, what was going on in the world. How could this have happened and what led up to it was the question of the day.”

“At that moment, my global knowledge was at a beginners level at best, caring mostly about work, school and spending time with family and friends. I didn’t know who either Bush or Bin Laden were but things definitely changed, quickly. A light bulb went off in my head that day and has been burning strong ever since.”

“My interest in history snowballed in the hours, days and years since 9/11 and now, I am basically obsessed with news. Even though I wasn’t directly affected by the tragic events, it changed my life, personally, forever. My favourite thing nowadays is getting the opportunity to meet and interview influential people and witnessing history.”
