NPR reporters Lisa Hagen, Chris Haxel, Graham Smith, and Robert Little won a Pulitzer Prize for audio reporting for their work on their podcast No Compromise about gun rights activists and the widening gap between American conservatives on that issue.
The Senior VP of News at NPR, Nancy Barnes emailed a statement noting that this is the second year that the Pulitzer Prize has experimented with an audio category. “You may recall that NPR was a finalist last year for the White Lies podcast,” she wrote. “The recognition today underscores the investments we have made in deep reporting, longform storytelling, and collaboration across NPR and our Member stations. Ordinarily, we would have a champagne toast in the newsroom today; we are immediately going to set to work on a plan to celebrate the Pulitzer Prize, and all the great work we have done in the past year, including our recent Gracie Award winners.”
The six-episode show ran from September to October of 2020.
