Co-Editor of Pulitzer Winning Efforts Now Part of Expanded OC Register News Section

As A1 page editor for the Seattle Times, David Birdwell (pictured) had a hand in two separate recent Pulitzer Prize-winning efforts. The first, honored in the Breaking News category in 2010, involved the paper’s coverage of the shooting deaths of four Lakewood, WA police officers. The second series, cited in 2012 for Investigative Reporting, recognized the work of reporters Michael J. Berens and Ken Armstrong in exposing corruption associated with the prescription of methadone at state-subsidized health care facilities.

This all bodes extremely well for the second, additional page of the Orange County Register’s “Focus” news section launching next Monday (the first was added to the paper last fall). Wire editor Birdwell will work closely with visual specialist Charles Apple to creatively frame the burning issue(s) of the day. From this week’s announcement:

Birdwell will contribute story ideas and some of the state, national and international wire packages for this second Focus page. Graphics editor Cindy O’Dell and team leader Gene Harbrecht will be part of the collaborative process that will result in thoughtful, visually compelling pages.
