Boston Globe wins Pulitzer for Marathon bombing coverage

One year after the Boston Marathon bombings, The Boston Globe was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in the breaking-news category for its multimedia coverage of the tragedy.

A packed newsroom applauded loudly as the award was announced Monday afternoon. Globe editor Brian McGrory said the prize, the Globe’s 23d overall, honored “each and every one” of the dozens of reporters, editors, photographers, graphic artists, designers, social media managers, and others who worked on the story over many grueling days and weeks.
