The name’s Kevin Edward Schultz, but you can just call me Kevin. I'm from the small town of Alexandria, Kentucky (think Cincinnati, Ohio, but just across the river and a bit more rural-suburban).
I'm currently stationed in Fairfield County Connecticut after stints in San Francisco, New York City and Cincinnati, Ohio. I moved to Connecticut in August 2016 for the second leg of my two-year journey as a Hearst Journalism Fellow.
I previously lived in the Bay Area for a year for my first leg of the fellowship where I served up science and health news and then breaking news for all of Northern California as a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle.
Before coming to the Bay Area, I was an American Society of Magazine Editors intern at Scientific American Magazine in New York City, an editorial intern at Cincinnati Magazine in Cincinnati, Ohio and a communications intern for The Scripps Howard Foundation in Highland Heights, Kentucky. I also wrote freelance for Cincinnati’s WCPO.com and completed an investigative piece on lead contamination for The Cincinnati Enquirer.
In May 2015 I received a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a bachelor's degree in English from Northern Kentucky University, where I served as editor-in-chief and digital projects manager for the university's independent news publication, The Northerner.
I’ve won multiple state and national awards for my reporting, editing and digital project management, such as Kentucky Press association awards for best news and multimedia stories and a Pinnacle Award for best multimedia news story.
