The Seattle Times engages and informs area readers with a wealth of local and international stories that have garnered nine Pulitzer Prizes since 1950, including a 2012 award for investigative reporting. Subscribers can wake to the satisfying thud of the paper hitting their doorstep or download a complimentary digital issue to their smartphone or tablet, treating eager peepers with current-events headlines. Frequent appearances by the Truth Needle column keep voters on their toes by fact-checking claims by local candidates and political movements, and insightful stories from the Puget Sound business community permeate the special Sunday Buzz section.
Special supplements, such as Pacific Northwest magazine, compile recipes, wine advice, and local features, and the NWArts&Life section offers astute criticisms of fine and popular culture. Regular columns reporting on athletics, travel, and local dining destinations enrich everyday adventures, and a classifieds section assists readers in finding a job, car, or long-lost left sock.
