Alumni in the News

Since 1919, the Daily Bruin has served as a training ground for generations of student journalists and launched the careers of many successful alumni. How many of these Daily Bruin alumni do you recognize?

2020 Pulitzer Prize winners

Congratulations to Robert Faturechi ’08 for winning the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting [Daily Bruin Article]. He and a team from ProPublica spent a year and a half reporting on three deadly accidents in the Marines and Navy that uncovered culpability for the disasters stemming from the highest levels of the organizations. Read their “Disaster in the Pacific” series. Robert got his start as an investigative reporter at the Bruin, where in 2007 he wrote about UCLA’s dental school saving admissions slots for donors’ relatives

Further kudos to Courtney Kan Alcantara ’10, a designer at the Washington Post who contributed to the paper’s Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting for a series on climate change and their recognition as a finalist for a series on the opioid epidemic.
