New York Times reporter David Barstow, a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, has been named to The Poynter Institute faculty as an adjunct.

The institute said in a news release that Barstow will teach for News University, Poynter’s online learning site, and will contribute to its Poynter.org news blog.

“David Barstow is one of the premier investigative reporters and storytellers of this generation, or any generation,” said Poynter President Tim Franklin. “He represents exactly what Poynter strives to impart in its programs and its teaching – excellent journalism that serves the public interest.”

Franklin said Barstow is one of several new adjuncts who will be added to the institute’s faculty team.

Barstow said he was honored to join Poynter. “I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned along the way – successes and failures alike – in keeping with Poynter’s rich and distinguished tradition of helping all of us become better story tellers,” he said in the release.

Barstow joined the Times in 1999 and previously worked for the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Rochester Times-Union and St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times).
