About Nicholas Kristof

A Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist, Nicholas Kristof has been christened the “reporter’s reporter” by other reporters. Kristof began backpacking in Africa and Asia, writing articles to cover his expenses. He’s lived on four continents, reported on six and traveled to more than 150 countries. During his travels, he has caught malaria, experienced wars, confronted warlords and survived an African airplane crash. Kristof not only managed to survive and press on, he’s also won two Pulitzers in the process.

Kristof joined the New York Times in 1984 as a correspondent and has been an op-ed columnist since 2001. He is the author of “Half the Sky” (2009) and “A Path Appears” (2014). In 1990, he won his first Pulitzer Prize with wife Sheryl WuDunn, who was also a New York Times journalist at the time. Kristof won his second Pulitzer in 2006 for what the judges called “his graphic, deeply reported columns that, at personal risk, focused on the attention on genocide in Darfur.”
