The managing editor of the nonprofit news organization ProPublica has been named to the 19-member board that administers the Pulitzer Prizes in journalism and the arts.
Columbia University announced Thursday that Stephen Engelberg will join the board. Engelberg has been managing editor of ProPublica since it was started in 2008.
ProPublica was the first online news organization to win a Pulitzer. It won the investigative reporting prize in 2010 for chronicling life-and-death decisions by a hospital's exhausted doctors after Hurricane Katrina. A year later it won the national reporting prize for exposing Wall Street practices that contributed to the nation's economic meltdown.
Before joining ProPublica, Engelberg worked for The Norfolk Virginian-Pilot, The Dallas Morning News, The New York Times and The Oregonian of Portland, Ore.
