LA Times Pulitzer Winner Set for Wisconsin Residency

Senior LA Times reporter Jeff Gottlieb, who along with Ruben Vives won a Pulitzer Prize for the pair’s 2010 series on endemic Bell city corruption, will be at the University of Wiconsin-Madison next week as the school’s latest public affairs writer in residence.

FishbowlLA reviewed Gottlieb’s schedule and it looks like the journalism faculty will be keeping him very busy. On Monday for example, there is a morning class with a room full of junior and senior students, a brown bag off-campus lunch with employees of the Capital Times and Wisconsin State Journal, an afternoon session with Master’s students and dinner at the La Follette School of Public Affairs.

Wednesday night, Gottlieb will talk at members of the local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists about “How Ruben and I Found the Bell Story.” Many in the audience for this evening event will once again connect him to Madison’s local papers.

Gottlieb will also squeeze in a visit to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newsroom Thursday and an ethics-in-journalism classroom session Friday afternoon before heading back to the airport for LA. Previous participants in this great program have included Jeff Zeleny, Blake Morrison and Lowell Bergman.
