Andy Kroll is a staff reporter in the Washington, DC bureau of Mother Jones magazine. Kroll has reported on a number of subjects, including the foreclosure crisis, financial bailouts, Congress, the 2008 and 2010 elections and the environment. The Columbia Journalism Review said his investigation into the seamy underworld of foreclosure mills was a “must read” and “a great piece of muckraking journalism.”
He is a two-time recipient of a Larry Lourain Journalism Grant from the Detroit chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists in 2008 and 2009, and the recipient of the Stan Lipsey Investigative Story Award at The Michigan Daily in 2009.
In 2010, Kroll was awarded an environmental journalism fellowship from Middlebury College to report from China and dig up the truth behind the green marketing for companies like Wal-Mart and Target. He’s also been awarded a grant from the The Nation Institute’s Investigative Fund.
Kroll’s work has appeared in The Detroit News, Salon, AlterNet and CNN.com. He’s currently an associate editor for TomDispatch.com, and in his free time, he writes about the sport he loves most — soccer — for SportsIllustrated.com and The Wall Street Journal. He tweets at @AndrewKroll.
