Newsroom

When the Pulitzer Prizes were announced earlier this week that The Boston Globe had been awarded a Pulitzer Prize in the breaking-news category for its coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings. Scott Helman and Jenna Russell, two staff writers who were at the forefront of the tragedy and part of the prize-winning news team, recently co-authored Dutton’s book Long Mile Home: Boston Under Attack, the City’s Courageous Recovery, and the Epic Hunt for Justice that was released on April 1st. With the first anniversary of the bombings this week, Helman and Russell have been highly sought after by the media to comment on the attack and share their stories. They appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Andrea Mitchell Reports, and Ronan Farrow Daily and Al-Jazeera’s America’s Morning Show. They were also featured on several national and local radio shows, including NPR’s Here and Now and Sirius-XM’s POTUS Press Pool.  Both authors have been participating in commemorative anniversary events, including a special panel at the JFK Library with WBUR Radio. The media for Long Mile Home will continue into next week, culminating with appearances on FOX’s Americas News Headquarters and CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, which will air on the same day as this year’s Boston Marathon.
