The Tampa Bay Times was awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Local Reporting yesterday.
Will Hobson and Michael LaForgia of Tampa Bay Times won the award for “their relentless investigation into the squalid conditions that marked housing for the city’s substantial homeless population, leading to swift reforms.”
For years, The Tampa Bay Times has been considered one of the top local papers in the nation. This is in addition to the paper’s long standing reputation as the newspaper of record in the state of Florida.
This is the tenth Pulitzer the paper has won, a milestone for any publication.
