Patrick Crowley worked 27 years as a newspaper, magazine, television, and Internet journalist, including 16 years as business writer, political writer and columnist, and metro columnist for The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Most of his time at the newspaper, one of the nation’s largest, was spent in the paper’s Northern Kentucky and Frankfort bureaus. In 2007, The Kentucky Press Association named him the state’s top columnist and his 2004 series on casino gambling earned state and national awards. The Washington Post selected him as one of the country’s top political reporters and political bloggers.
During his newspaper career, Crowley also worked for The Cincinnati Post, The Cincinnati Business Record, The Maysville Ledger-Independent, the Register Newspapers of Southeastern Indiana, and The Recorder Newspapers of Northern Kentucky.
As a Kentucky political and government writer, Crowley also covered nearly 20 regular and special sessions of the Kentucky General Assembly; the administrations of six governors; the 1996 and 2000 Republican and Democratic national conventions; and several Senate, Congressional, statehouse, county, and city campaigns. He also spent a year covering Cincinnati City Hall and several years reporting on state agencies, local governments, and public and private schools.
Crowley’s freelance work has appeared in Newsweek, Family Circle, American Bar Association Journal, National Real Estate Investor, National Journal, Identity Magazine, Casino Journal, Congress Daily, and on several Web sites, among them MortgageDaily.com — where he also wrote a blog on mortgage fraud — TheStreet.com, Orbitz.Com, Salon.Com, Voter.com and many others.
Crowley hosted two long-running television shows on Insight Channel ICN6 in Northern Kentucky: On The Record, a public affairs show, and Northern Kentucky Magazine, a morning news and feature program. He has regularly appeared as a commentator on KET’s Comment on Kentucky, WCPO-TV in Cincinnati, and WLW radio in Cincinnati.
Throughout his long career in journalism, Crowley has honed a keen and deep knowledge of the political system, the inner-workings of government and business, the value of strong communications and messaging, and the necessity of strategic planning for crisis in politics, government, and business.
Crowley lives in Fort Thomas, Ky., with his wife Pam. His daughter, Shayna, works as a strategist at Strategic Advisers. His son, Conor, is a freshman at the University of Cincinnati. Away from work, he enjoys spending time with his family, reading, writing, playing golf, traveling, volunteer work, and relaxing with friends.
