Daily Breeze Wins Pulitzer

The Daily Breeze, the daily newspaper covering Los Angeles County’s South Bay, has won a Pulitzer Prize for local reporting.

The paper won the award for its coverage of the Centinela Valley Unified School District. Reporters Rebecca Kimitch and Rob Kuznia, and Daily Breeze City Editor Frank Suraci were the recipients of the prize “for their inquiry into widespread corruption in a small, cash-strapped school district, including impressive use of the paper’s website,” according to Columbia University, which announced the prizes Monday.

The newspaper’s investigation focused on now-former school district superintendent Jose Fernandez, whose compensation package amounted to more than $663,000. He was fired after the Breeze’s investigation.

Two Los Angeles Times reporters also won Pulitzers: Fresno-based reporter Diana Marcus for her coverage of California’s drought and Mary McNamara for her television criticism.
