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?
