About Me

Hi, I’m Shawn Mulcahy. I’m a 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 Florida’s 2018 election to President Trump’s trade war to race relations in the South.

Most recently, I was a reporter, producer and host for WFSU Public Media in Tallahassee, Florida. I covered state government, with a love for criminal justice and cannabis stories.

I’m a graduate student at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, focusing on social justice and investigative reporting. I graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University in May 2019 with majors in public relations and political science.
