After freelancing for Block Club Chicago while completing his Master’s Degree at Medill, Colin Boyle accepted a full-time position with the non-profit, subscription-based news outlet at the end of November 2020.

“I can’t wait to get back to serving my hometown through visual reporting and connecting with my neighbors across Chicago,” Boyle said. Boyle, a life-long Chicagoan, completed his undergraduate studies in journalism and Spanish at Medill and received an MSJ in video & broadcast journalism.

Throughout his time at Northwestern, Boyle served as photo editor for The Daily Northwestern for six consecutive quarters, co-writing a months-long investigative piece about educational and racial disparities in Evanston’s Fifth Ward. He has interned with The Chicago Sun-Times, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and most recently at IndyStar as a Pulliam Fellow. In 2019, Boyle completed his journalism residency at Infobae in Buenos Aires, Argentina, covering social unrest and daily news as a photojournalist.
