WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 15, 2013) –The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is pleased to congratulate NABJ’s 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner and Denver Post Editor Gregory L. Moore on being awarded the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting.

The Denver Post staff was honored for its coverage of the Aurora, Colo. movie theater shooting that killed 12 and injured 58 in July 2012.  The coverage—which included online, social media, video, photography and print stories—documented the first four days of the shooting.

"We all wish July 20 never happened, but it did and I could not be more proud of The Denver Post for its exhaustive and creative coverage. It is a great achievement to have that work honored with a Pulitzer Prize," said Gregory L. Moore, Editor of the Denver Post.

The Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting is awarded "for a distinguished example of local reporting of breaking news that, as quickly as possible, captures events accurately as they occur, and, as time passes, illuminates, provides context and expands upon the initial coverage," according to the announcement made today by Columbia University.

This year's award marks the fourth consecutive year The Denver Post has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize. The newspaper will receive the Prize on May 30 in New York City.


An advocacy group established in 1975 in Washington, D.C., NABJ is the largest organization for journalists of color in the nation, and provides career development as well as educational and other support to its members worldwide. For more information, please visit
