Jim Romanesko’s coverage of yesterday’s Pulitzer prizes features this profile of Stephen Kurkjian, Boston Globe metro editor and member of the team that exposed the scope of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests. What neither Romanesko nor the profile mention is that Kurkjian is a lawyer by training and member in good standing of the Massachusetts bar.

Also at Poynter is A Prized Moment for the Globe, and the Pulitzers, Roy Harris’ piece on the Pulitzer’s public-service award.

Over at the Boston Phoenix, media critic Dan Kennedy provides links to some of the prize-winning work of yesterday’s three Boston-area Pulitzer winners, the Boston Globe, the Lawrence Eagle-Tribune, and Samantha Power, author of “A Problem from Hell: America in the Age of Genocide.”
