New class of Nieman fellows announced

Anna Gorman of the Los Angeles Times is among the journalists selected to spend the year at Harvard and attend Nieman Foundation for Journalism reunions forever after. She "plans to study the intersection between poverty and public health, with a focus on health disparities and how neighborhoods impact well-being."

Noted: The winners of the Times' internal newsroom awards include — in addition to Toyota scoopsters Ralph Vartabedian and Ken Bensinger mentioned in the Morning Buzz — Joel Rubin for LAPD coverage, Jason Song and Jason Felch for investigating bad teachers, Garrett Therolf, Kim Christensen and Hector Becerra for deaths of children under the county's care, Christopher Goffard for feature writing, Diane Pucin for sports coverage, TV critic Mary McNamara for criticism, and a team of reporters on Michael Jackson for breaking news coverage. The bloggers cited were Carolyn Kellogg for Jacket Copy and the team behind Company Town.
