The Pulitzer Prize Board has honored Ukrainian journalists for their “courage, endurance and commitment to truthful reporting” following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The New York Times also won a 2022 Pulitzer Prize for their “courageous and relentless reporting that exposed the vast civilian toll of U.S.-led airstrikes, challenging official accounts of American military engagements in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.”
Maria Hinojosa and the staff of Futuro Media won for audio reporting for their podcast “Suave” that profiled David Luis “Suave” Gonzalez as he reentered society after serving over 30 years in prison. Maria Hinojosa posted this video on Twitter as she shared the news with Suave on Monday.
Maria Hinojosa: “Guys, we won a Pulitzer! We won a Pulitzer Prize! We won a Pulitzer for 'Suave'! What? I didn’t even — I mean, it’s like I never even thought of winning a Pulitzer!”
