1 min read

Kevin Cullen, a member of the current Nieman class, was one of the team of reporters for the Boston Globe that won the Pulitzer Prize for meritorious public service for its coverage of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests. Cullen had been an international correspondent for the Globe, based in England and Ireland, until he returned to the newsroom last year. The Pulitzer citation praised the Globe for “courageous, comprehensive coverage of sexual abuse by priests, an effort that pierced secrecy, stirred local, national and international reaction and produced changes in the Roman Catholic Church.”
