Weekly Writer Wins Pulitzer Prize

Food critic Jonathan Gold of our sister paper LA Weekly has won a 2007 Pulitzer Prize for criticism, it was announced today.

The Pulitzer Board noted Gold's "zestful, wide ranging restaurant reviews, expressing the delight of an erudite eater."

The two other excellent nominees were both from the Los Angeles Times.

Congratulations to Jonathan for earning this news organization's FOURTH Pulitzer Prize.

(The Orange County Register has won three.)

In 2000, Mark Schoofs of the Village Voice--another sister paper to OC Weekly--defeated the Washington Post and the Associated Press to win the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting.

In 1986, the Village Voice's Jules Feiffer won for cartooning and in 1981 the paper's Teresa Carpenter won for feature writing.
