Kevin G. Hall, the former South America bureau chief, is the Bureau's chief economics correspondent. During a 25-year career he has worked in Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Saudi Arabia, Miami, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., and has reported from across the globe. He is the 2004 winner of the Sigma Delta Chi award, given by the Society of Professional Journalists Award for best foreign correspondence. A member of the National Economists Club, Hall is also on the executive committee of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, the nation’s premier association for business journalists.
In 2010, he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for national reporting (along with colleagues Greg Gordon and Chris Adams) for detailing in 2009 how Wall Street sold out investors and caused the nation's deep financial crisis. They shared the University of Southern California’s Loeb Award for that package. He is also the 2011 recipient of the Weidenbaum Center Award for Evidence-Based Journalism, given by Washington University in St. Louis.
