COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The British newspaper that won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of secret U.S. government surveillance is among this year’s recipients of the Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism.

The University of Missouri School of Journalism presents the medal annually in recognition of superior or lifetime achievement.

The school cited the Guardian newspaper for its coverage of surveillance by the U.S. National Security Agency surveillance.

Also being honored is Ukraine’s Kyiv Post, an English-language weekly, for its work chronicling the political turmoil that swept the country’s president from power.

The other medalists are former Wall Street Journal editor and New York Times ombudsman Byron Calame; National Public Radio host Audie Cornish; retired MU journalism professor Steve Kopcha; documentary filmmaker Eugene Richards; and Wired magazine.
