The Chicago Sun-Times won a Pulitzer Prize for local reporting on Monday, with the award going to Frank Main, Mark Konkol and John J. Kim.

The Sun-Times story is here.

Excerpt: "For the first time in 22 years, the Chicago Sun-Times has won a Pulitzer Prize, putting reporters Frank Main, Mark Konkol and photographer John J. Kim -- who won for local reporting -- in the company of such legendary Sun-Times newsmen as Roger Ebert, John H. White and Jack Higgins.

From the Pulitzer release: "Awarded to Frank Main, Mark Konkol and John J. Kim of the Chicago Sun-Times for their immersive documentation of violence in Chicago neighborhoods, probing the lives of victims, criminals and detectives as a widespread code of silence impedes solutions."

Congratulations Frank, Mark and John. A proud day for the Sun-Times.
