REDDING, Conn. – Mike McIntire, a New York Times investigative reporter and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, will talk about recent groundbreaking exposés during a program, “Inside the Times,” at the Mark Twain Library in Redding at 7:30 p.m., Thursday.
McIntire, who joined the Times in 2003, has produced in-depth stories on a wide range of subjects, including presidential politics, terrorism and Wall Street bailouts. His investigation of corruption in college sports was a finalist for this year’s Pulitzer Prize.
After getting his start at the Wilton Bulletin in the 1980s, McIntire worked at several Connecticut newspapers and was the investigative editor at The Hartford Courant, where he was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize for breaking news reporting and a Pulitzer finalist for investigative reporting on medical malpractice.
At the Times, McIntire has covered a broad range of topics, which typically involve interviews with reluctant sources, deep Web searches, or following paper trails to unearth hidden documents.
Recently, McIntire has reported on the sources of donations to the Clinton Foundation, corruption in the Florida State University football program and a series on the gun control issues.
McIntire has also been a national writer at The Associated Press in New York. His investigation of dangerous conditions at nuclear power plants earned him a National Press Foundation Award, and he received a Scripps Howard Foundation National Public Service Award for exposing political corruption in Connecticut.
