The Pulitzer Prizes | November 9, 2019
Carlos Lozada, an associate editor and book critic for The Washington Post, and David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, have been elected to the Pulitzer Prize Board, Columbia University announced today.
“Both as distinguished journalists and past Pulitzer Prize winners, Lozada and Remnick bring deep knowledge and a wealth of experience to the board. We are delighted to welcome them,” Pulitzer Administrator Dana Canedy said.
During his 14 years at the Post, Lozada has overseen coverage of economics and national security and has served as editor of the paper’s Sunday Outlook section. He became a book critic in 2015, with a focus on nonfiction works.
Lozada received the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism in 2019 for his “trenchant and searching essays and reviews that joined warm emotion and careful analysis in examining a broad range of books addressing government and the American experience.” He also was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism in 2018.
“Receiving the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism earlier this year was such an honor, and I can’t think of a better way to show my gratitude than to help shape and promote the long-term mission of the Pulitzers, especially in a moment of such challenges for journalism and truth. Thanks to the Board members for their vote of confidence — I’m excited to get started,” Lozada said.
