NEW YORK (AP) — One of the top editors at The Associated Press has been named to the board that administers the Pulitzer Prizes, journalism's most prestigious awards.
Columbia University, which oversees the prizes, announced John Daniszewski's (dan-ih-SHEHV'-skee's) election Wednesday.
Daniszewski is AP's vice president and senior managing editor for international news. He has spent more than 30 years in journalism and has covered news in more than 70 countries.
The Pulitzers are given out annually for journalism as well as the arts. This year's winners were announced in April, and the prizes will be awarded May 30.
The board is made up of 19 members, two of whom are non-voting. Members serve up to nine years, in three-year terms.
