About Me

Hi, I’m Shawn Mulcahy. I’m a freelance journalist and audio producer based in Chicago, IL.

Equally adept at breaking news and crafting long-form enterprise stories, I’ve reported on everything from voting rights in the Cook County Jail, to federal lobbying efforts on cannabis, to Florida’s 2018 election.

I’m a graduate student at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, focusing on social justice and investigative reporting.

Previously, I was a reporter, producer and host for WFSU Public Media in Tallahassee, Florida, where I covered state and local government.

I graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University in May 2019 with majors in public relations and political science.
