Fun night in New York for a delegation from the Los Angeles Times local news staff. They were at the Columbia University banquet to pick up their Pulitzer Prize for breaking news coverage of last year's San Bernardino terrorist shootings. The prize was awarded to the staff of the Times; those representing include reporters Sarah Parvini and Paloma Esquivel, graphics journalist Priya Krishnakumar, photojournalist Marcus Yam and director of audience engagement Alexandra Manzano.

Also on hand were editor-in-chief and publisher Davan Maharaj, managing editor Marc Duvoisin, assistant managing editor Shelby Grad and deputy managing editor Megan Garvey — maybe more. Those are just the ones I have seen on social media.

Critic-at-large for the LAT book section Viet Thanh Nguyen was also there to get his Pulitzer Prize in fiction for "The Sympathizer." The winners this year included the four Associated Press reporters who won in public service for stories on labor abuses tied to the supply of seafood to American supermarkets and restaurants, and Lin-Manuel Miranda in drama for "Hamilton."
