Congratulations to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune’s Michael Braga, who won a Pulitzer Prize in investigative reporting for his investigative piece “Insane. Invisible. In Danger,” a multi-part investigation of the consequences of the state of Florida’s budget cuts on mental hospitals.
Braga was honored alongside Tampa Bay Times reporters Anthony Cormier, formerly of the Herald-Tribune, and Leonora LaPeter Anton.
“I’ve thrashed around my whole career trying to get to bigger papers in bigger cities, but it turns out I was in the right place all along,” said Braga. “I’ve been able to work on fascinating and far-reaching stories, and I’ve been surrounded by extraordinarily talented and driven journalists and patient editors who tolerated my eccentricities and were willing to dole out dozens of second chances.”
This marks the second Pulitzer Prize for the Herald-Tribune and the second time Braga has been a finalist for the honor.
