On Monday, March 25, 2024, the Pulitzer Prizes launched the first season of its official podcast, Pulitzer on the Road, with a live event in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism of Arizona State University. The event was produced in collaboration with Arizona PBS

On stage for the event were 2023 Explanatory Reporting winner Caitlin Dickerson, a staff writer at The Atlantic, and 2023 Local Reporting and 2018 Commentary winner John Archibald, a reporter and columnist for AL.com. They were joined by podcast producer Nicole Carroll, a Pulitzer Board member, Cronkite School professor of practice and executive director of the ASU Local Journalism Initiative.
