Rukmini Callimachi is this year’s recipient of the Michael Kelly Award for her work as the West Africa bureau chief for the Associated Press, Atlantic Media announced yesterday. The award is given each year by Atlantic Media to a reporter who “exemplifies the fearless pursuit and expression of truth,” and is named after the former editor of The Atlantic and National Journal who was killed while reporting in Iraq in 2003. Callimachi was honored at a dinner last night in Washington hosted by Atlantic Media CEO David Bradley.
