Kevin Cullen



To quote Johnny Cash, Kevin Cullen has been everywhere, man. He worked as a local, national and foreign correspondent before becoming a columnist. Cullen also served as bureau chief in Dublin and then, in London. He did a few stints on The Spotlight Team, and was apart of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize in Public Service in 2003 for exposing the coverup of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests. In 2014, Cullen won the Mike Royko Award as best columnist chosen by the American Society of Newspaper Editors. He was part of the team awarded the Pulitzer for breaking news for coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings, and was a Pulitzer finalist in commentary. Cullen was the only two-time winner of ASNE’s Batten Medal for writing about the marginalized. The co-author of the New York Times bestseller, Whitey Bulger, and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, Cullen thought Harvard had standards until they gave him a Nieman Fellowship.
