Podcast with Michael Kruse

On the most recent Gangrey: The Podcast, Matt Tullis talks with Michael Kruse, staff writer on the enterprise team at the Tampa Bay Times. In October and November, Kruse published a three-part series titled “The Last Voyage of the Bounty.” It chronicled a tall wooden ship bound for St. Petersburg, Fla., as she sailed straight into Hurricane Sandy. Sixteen sailors were aboard that ship, and not everyone survived.

Kruse has been recognized for his writing and reporting a number of times. Most recently, he won the Paul Hansell Award for Distinguished Achievement in Florida Journalism. He also won the American Society of News Editors distinguished nondeadline writing award. His story, “A Brevard woman disappeared, but never left home,” was included in the anthology “Next Wave: America’s Next Generation of Great Literary Journalists.” He’s given a TedX talk on the importance of story, and has written the book “Taking the Shot: The Davidson Basketball Moment.”

On top of writing for the Tampa Bay Times, Kruse has also been published by ESPN, Yahoo sports, Our State and Men’s Health magazines and Harvard’s Nieman Storyboard, among others.
