2009 Pulitzers Honor New York Times, Jon Meacham
Written by Bwog Staff
This year’s Pulitzer Prizes are being announced at a J-School press conference right now, but why wait when they’re already online? On the “Letters, Drama, and Music” side, Newsweek’s Jon Meacham won in the biography category for his biography (duh) of Andrew Jackson, while Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge won in the fiction category.
This year’s big winner on the journalism side is the New York Times, which won 5 awards, including “Breaking News Reporting” and “International Reporting.” More importantly, they recieved $10,000 for each award: that may come in handy.
