LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A longtime managing editor of the Wall Street Journal and founding editor of the investigative news site ProPublica has been awarded William Allen White Foundation’s 2014 National Citation by the University of Kansas School of Journalism.

Paul Steiger was presented Friday with the award, which has gone to prominent journalists, editors and publishers such as Arthur Sulzberger, Bob Woodward and Walter Cronkite.

The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/LIhhdG) reports Steiger is a 1964 graduate of Yale who was managing editor of the Wall Street Journal from 1991 to 2007. The newspaper’s staff won 16 Pulitzer Prizes during his tenure.

At a ceremony Friday, Steiger said journalists, publishers and others need to find a way to get paid enough to cover the cost of doing journalism in a rapidly changing industry.
