"All Things Considered:"

"Papers Share 2006 Pulitzer for Katrina Coverage:" An overview of the winners, which included The Times-Picayune of New Orleans for its breaking news coverage in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. An award in the category of public service was shared with The Sun Herald of Gulfport, Mississippi.

The award for National Reporting was shared among The San Diego Union-Tribune and Copley News Service for their coverage of the bribery scandal that ultimately sent former California Representative Randall "Duke" Cunningham to prison and The New York Times. Times' reporters James Risen and Eric Lichtblau were the first to report late last year that the National Security Agency "has been conducting secret surveillance of American citizens."

"Editorial Cartoonist Luckovich Nets a Pulitzer:" A conversation with Mike Luckovich of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. This is Luckovich's second prize; he won the award in 1995.

"Talk of the Nation:"

"Media Pulitzer Winners Describe That Winning Feeling:" Guest host Michel Martin talks to two of last year's winners, Nick Anderson (for editorial cartooning) and Connie Schultz (for commentary).

Anderson is with The Houston Chronicle, but was with The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky when he won the prize. Schultz is a columnist for The Plain Dealer in Cleveland.
