Kevin Salwen is the co-author of “The Suspect: An Olympic Bombing, the FBI, the Media, and Richard Jewell, the Man Caught in the Middle.” The book is a source for the new Clint Eastwood film, Richard Jewell, starring Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, and Jon Hamm.

Salwen was a reporter, columnist and editor at the Wall Street Journal for 18 years. At the nation’s largest newspaper, he helped cover two presidential administrations, wrote two columns and launched two publications. After leaving the paper in 2000, Salwen built several media companies, consulted to the U.S. Olympic Committee and Yahoo, and wrote (along with his then-teenaged daughter) “The Power of Half: One Family’s Decision to Stop Taking and Start Giving Back.”

In 2016, Salwen was a partner at Stanford University’s Distinguished Careers Institute, and is a recipient of the Northwestern University Service to Society Award.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Kevin has served on the boards of Year Up Atlanta and Habitat for Humanity in Atlanta.
