Noteworthy in the 2013 Pulitzer announcements are the multiple winners. The New York Times
won four and the Star Tribune
two. Having just wrapped up a session on paywalls at the NAA mediaXchange conference in Orlando, one that included discussion of both the Times
and the Star Tribune
, I wondered about a few connections.
Was it a coincidence that two of most successful all-access digital
circulation strategies in the country belonged to the multiple winners?
What could the relationship be? How could we think about those links
between Pulitzers, paywalls, and investing in newsrooms?
