Two of the power winners of Pulitzer Prizes we highlighted Tuesday, Amy Ellis Nutt of the Newark Star-Ledger and Paige St. John of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, answered questions Wednesday as part of a panel put together by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

Nutt and St. John were part of an online conversation with Prof. Sig Gissler, administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, and some of the other Pulitzer winners. Nutt, 55, was cited by the Pulitzer board for her “deeply probing story of the mysterious sinking of a commercial fishing boat in the Atlantic Ocean that drowned six men.” St. John won the prize for investigative reporting “for her examination of weaknesses in the murky property-insurance system vital to Florida homeowners, providing handy data to assess insurer reliability and stirring regulatory action.”

Dean Sree Sreenivasan of Columbia moderated the discussion, which is available here.
