Chronicle Reporter Wins Major Award for Investigative Journalism

Alex Richards, a reporter in The Chronicle’s data-research section, has been honored with the $25,000 Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting for his work on a project on hospital care in Las Vegas that was published last year by the Las Vegas Sun, where he worked before joining The Chronicle. Mr. Richards shared the prize with Marshall Allen, a Sun colleague, in a ceremony on Monday at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, whose Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy selected their project over finalists from, among others, the Los Angeles Times, National Public Radio, and The Washington Post.
