DETROIT — Angelo Henderson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Detroit journalist and radio talk show host, died Saturday of natural causes, a medical examiner's spokesman said. He was 51.

Henderson was most recently a host on radio station WCHB. He worked at the St. Petersburg Times in the early 1980s before moving to the Louisville Courier-Journal in 1986. He then moved to the Detroit News in 1989. He joined the Wall Street Journal in 1995 and in 1999 won the Pulitzer Prize in the feature writing category for a portrait of a druggist driven to violence by encounters with armed robbers.

Henderson, an ordained minister, also served as the director of community affairs at Triumph Church. He is survived by his wife, Felecia, assistant managing editor of features and presentation at the Detroit News, and their son, Grant, 19.
