Listen live to Pulitzers announcement

If you've tried to follow the Pulitzer announcements by Twitter in the past, you know it's like trying to drink from a firehose. Columbia University will broadcast the audio of the announcement starting at 2:45 p.m. ET.

Host Sree Sreenivasan tells Poynter he's especially interested in getting winning newsrooms to call in after 3:10 p.m. (The awards are announced at 3 p.m.)

Sreenivasan would like to hear "hollering and such" in the background of calls, so buy your interns some thundersticks. He's also in the market for guests; email him or blogtalkradio's Chitra Agrawal three to five minutes before you're ready to go on air, he says. The call-in number is 646-915-9583.

Report: Homicide Watch founder among members of Pulitzer jury

Quartz
Laura Amico is among the people jurying this year's Pulitzer Prizes, Quartz's Zachary M. Seward and David Yanofsky report. The cofounder of Homicide Watch, they say, joins a slate of jury members that includes a number of people whose news organizations or jobs tilt digital, including Rachel Smolkin of Politico, Wall Street Journal digital honcho Raju Narisetti and Cate Barron of The (Harrisburg, Pa.)
