NPR's Melissa Block and Robert Siegel correct an error in an earlier piece that said the Charleston Post-Gazette won the 2015 Public Service Pulitzer. It was actually The Post and Courier.

ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST:

We got something wrong on this program yesterday, and right now, we'd like to take a moment to get it right.

MELISSA BLOCK, HOST:

We reported on the winner of one of journalism's most prestigious awards, the Public Service Pulitzer. It went to a small newspaper in South Carolina for a series about domestic violence called "Till Death Do Us Part." The series investigated why South Carolina is among the deadliest states in the nation for women.

SIEGEL: We said The Charleston Post-Gazette won that award, and that is not the paper's name. It is The Post and Courier. We regret the error.
