Love this photo of Bill Buzenberg and his staff at the Center for Public Integrity celebrating their first Pulitzer.

When I first started working on this project in 2003, I had the great privilege of working with Bill. He was our executive producer at the time. I was new to journalism and producing radio, but I got to learn from him on a daily basis — from near and afar (his voice carries through solid doors). What I most admired was his passion: for news and for learning — a great thinker with an infinitely curious mind. He was very kind and supportive; I treasure those days.

When he left to lead the Center for Public Integrity, I was chagrined but knew he’d reshape that important investigative organization. And, lo and behold, he’s led CPI to its very first Pulitzer Prize for "Breathless and Burdened." A hearty congratulations to him and his staff!
