We are happy to share congratulations this this evening to the Mansfield News Journal, whose team contributed to something absolutely amazing – and prize-winning.
The 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Local Reporting has been awarded to The Cincinnati Enquirer Staff “for a riveting and insightful narrative and video documenting seven days of greater Cincinnati’s heroin epidemic, revealing how the deadly addiction has ravaged families and communities,” according to the official Pulitzer Prize website.
According to a story in the Mansfield News Journal, the local media company contributed to this effort both through reporting and photography as a part of Gannett’s Media Network of Central Ohio. Read the local story here.
Pulitzer Prizes are awarded annually in 21 categories in the areas of newspaper, magazine, and online journalism, literature, and musical composition. It was begun in 1917 and is administered by Columbia University. It has long been considered the “Cadillac” of traditional newspaper reporting recognition.
Again, kudos to our friends at the NJ!
