Join us March 21 at 2 p.m. EDT as we chat live with David Boardman, executive editor of The Seattle Times.
As an editor for The Times, Boardman has directed three Pulitzer Prize-winning team projects and edited six other stories that were Pulitzer finalists. The winners were:
- an investigation of the federal tribal-housing program, which won the 1997 Pulitzer for investigative reporting,
- coverage of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, which won the 1990 Pulitzer for national reporting,
- coverage of the shooting deaths of four police officers , which won the 2010 Pulitzer for breaking news.
The Times’ use of digital and social-media tools in covering the shooting deaths, as well as its neighborhood blogs, won it the fourth annual APME Innovator of the Year award in 2010.
Boardman, who has worked at The Times since 1983, was promoted to the top newsroom job from managing editor in 2006. He is a 10-year director and past president of Investigative Reporters and Editors. He is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University and has a graduate degree from the University of Washington.
Bring your questions here for Boardman from 2 to 2:45 p.m. EDT on March 21 on how to win a Pulitzer and how to drive innovation in your newsroom.
