A Pulitzer Prize for reporter Brenda Starr? Hold page one!

Wait — hold everything. The 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary was awarded to Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich, who wrote the Brenda Starr comic from 1985 until the strip’s demise in 2011.

Mary Schmich, a former Nieman Fellow, has reported for the Orlando Sentinel and Chicago Tribune and has written a column for the Trib since 1992. The award cites “her wide range of down-to-earth columns that reflect the character and capture the culture of her famed city.” She says she’s grateful to the people of Chicago, whose stories she tells in her column. Somewhere, Brenda Starr is tearing up.
