John Krull became the director of Franklin College's Pulliam School of Journalism in August of 2004.
A Franklin alumnus, Krull graduated in 1981 with a degree in journalism and history. He did his graduate work at Saint Louis University and received a Master of Arts degree in American Studies from that school in 1984.
Prior to coming home to Franklin College, Krull served as the executive director of the Indiana Civil Liberties Union. Under his leadership, the ICLU experienced record growth and established itself as one of the most effective not-for-profits in the country.
Krull's ICLU experience followed a long career as a newspaper reporter, columnist, feature writer and editorial writer. During his journalism career, Krull's work appeared frequently in magazines and earned more than 30 writing honors and awards. He also has appeared often on television and radio news programs.
His first book, Emily's Walk, appeared in 2002. It now is in its second printing, and has been used on college and university campuses as a primer on how state government really works.
Most recently, Krull became host of "No Limits," a news and public affairs show airing at noon each Thursday on WFYI public radio. He also was instrumental in forming a partnership between Franklin College and the Hoosier State Press Association (HSPA) to provide coverage of state government and politics by Franklin College student journalists for Indiana's newspapers year-round.
