Jim Hoagland (born January 22, 1940) is an American journalist and two-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize. He is an associate editor, senior foreign correspondent, and columnist for The Washington Post. The Forbes Media Guide Five Hundred, 1994 states:

Relying on his reporting skills and knowledge of nations and governments around the globe, Hoagland has become one of the top columnists on foreign affairs. He offers fresh angles and insights on almost every subject he covers.[1]

Born in Rock Hill, South Carolina, Hoagland is a graduate of the University of South Carolina. He attended post graduate programs at both the University of Aix-en-Provence in France and Columbia University in New York.

Writing for the Washington Post, he won the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 1971 "for his coverage of the struggle against apartheid in the Republic of South Africa." Again for the Post he won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 1991 "for searching and prescient columns on events leading up to the Gulf War and on the political problems of Mikhail Gorbachev."

Hoagland is also known for receiving the Legion of Honor, France's equivalent to the British knighthood, for his lifelong effort to better Franco-American relations.

He is an Annenberg Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution.[2]

Hoagland has three children and is married to the author Jane Stanton Hitchcock.
