Based in Prague, Stuart Greer is a Multimedia Editor with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). With 25 years of experience as a broadcast journalist, he has reported from more than 30 countries covering some of the biggest international news stories of the last two decades. He has reported from conflicts in Afghanistan and Georgia, witnessed revolution in Egypt, was on the ground in northern Iraq when ISIS swept through the region, and he told the stories of migrant children fleeing alone to Europe.
In early 2020, Stuart travelled to the Black Sea to shoot a documentary about Ukraine's struggle to rebuild its navy following Russia’s annexation of Crimea and, in a 2018 documentary, he investigated the legacy of chemical weapons in Iraq.
Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, Stuart began his broadcasting career as a radio reporter for CHOM-FM covering the 1995 Quebec independence referendum. A year later, he became a political correspondent for CJAD radio reporting from the provincial legislature in Quebec City. He then moved to Global Quebec Television in 1997 as its National Assembly Bureau Chief following the separatist Parti Québecois government and hosting a weekly political panel.
Looking to gain international experience, Stuart moved to London in 2003 to work as a freelance producer for Sky News, BBC Radio and CBS News. He soon picked-up a camera and was shooting and editing reports for Canada's Global News as a "one-man-band" video-journalist. He covered the 2005 London transit bombings, travelled to Georgia to report on the short 2008 war with Russia, and the following year, he was in Afghanistan covering the conflict in Kandahar province. After being named as Global's Foreign Editor, Stuart relocated to Prague for three years where he set-up a bureau to expand Global News' coverage in central and Eastern Europe. He witnessed the devastation caused by the 2010 toxic-sludge spill in Hungary, he travelled to Kosovo to report on organ trafficking, and he covered the funeral of former Czech President Vaclav Havel.
In 2013, Stuart returned to London to become Global News' European Bureau Chief. He covered UK politics and British royalty, travelled to Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympics, reported on the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks in Paris and the Westgate Mall siege in Nairobi.
Stuart's reporting from Cairo on the 2011 Egyptian revolution helped Global News earn the RTDNA award for continuing coverage. And his report on the arrest of Canadian fugitive Luka Magnotta in Berlin contributed to Global National News winning the 2013 Edward R. Murrow Award for overall excellence in network television. It was the first time a Canadian news program took the prestigious American prize.
Stuart is a graduate of McGill University with a BA in Film & Communications.
