Presenter Dave Cullen has written for The New York Times, London Times, Vanity Fair, Politico, The Guardian, Washington Post, Slate, and Salon, among others. He has appeared on PBS Newshour, NBC Nightly News, CBS Sunday Morning, Nightline, Anderson Cooper 360, Rachel Maddow, Chris Hayes, Lawrence O'Donnell, and Talk of the Nation. He is the author of two books covering the blight of mass murders in America for two decades, first with "Columbine", now "Parkland: Birth of a Movement". "Columbine" was a New York Times bestseller and the consensus definitive account. "Parkland" is a story of hope: the genesis of the extraordinary March for Our Lives movement. Dave was with the students from the beginning, with unparalleled access behind the scenes. "Columbine" made two dozen Best of 2009 lists including New York Times, and won several major awards, including the Edgar and Goodreads Choice Award for best nonfiction of the year. It now appears on several all-time True Crime Top 10 lists.
