Nieman News

Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen, a 2003 Nieman Fellow, has won the Batten Medal for individual achievement in public-service journalism from the American Society of News Editors. Cullen, who also received the award in 2008, is the only journalist to have won the Batten twice. Judges praised his work saying “Kevin Cullen’s work epitomizes the values Jim Batten stood for: compassion, honesty, courage and a high regard for those on the margins of contemporary society. In compact prose, Cullen tells powerful stories that move the heart and get results; he’s not just a chronicler of the human condition, he’s an advocate for those whose lives he touches.”
