Columnist

Kevin Cullen

To quote Johnny Cash, I’ve been everywhere, man. Worked as a local, national and foreign correspondent before becoming a columnist. Served as bureau chief in Dublin then London. Did a few stints on The Spotlight Team, and was part 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, won the Mike Royko Award as best columnist chosen by the American Society of Newspaper Editors, part of the team awarded the Pulitzer for breaking news for coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings, and was Pulitzer finalist in commentary. The only two-time winner of ASNE’s Batten Medal for writing about the marginalized. Co-author of the New York Times bestseller, “Whitey Bulger,” a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. I thought Harvard had standards until they gave me a Nieman Fellowship.
