Nicki Egan is an award-winning journalist and former People magazine senior writer who was the first reporter to dig into the Bill Cosby drugging and sexual assault allegations in 2005 when other reporters shied away. She has brought in exclusives on some of the nation’s biggest crime, medical and human-interest stories and has a 28-year plus record of going up against some of the nation’s most powerful people to expose wrongdoing. She also has a master’s degree in criminal justice from Temple University and is the author of the forthcoming book CHASING COSBY (Hachette/Seal Press, April 2019).


Cosby, 80, faces 30 years in prison after he was convicted on all counts of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand—one of more than 60 women who say he raped them.
