The Seattle Times’ thoughtful, independent journalism shines a light into the corners of local life that need examining, explores solutions and has a direct impact on our community.
In an age of media conglomeration, The Seattle Times is proud to be one of the few remaining independent and locally owned metropolitan newspapers in the U.S. We are a family-owned business deeply rooted in the community and committed to principled, quality journalism that has a direct impact on our local community.
The Seattle Times’ rigorously reported, multimedia coverage digs deep to engage the public, call for accountability and explore solutions to make a difference for the people of our region. Our stories have changed public funding and policy and resulted in action at the highest levels of government. We continue to innovate every day, engaging readers with multimedia experiences and coverage that is as dynamic and vibrant as our region.
Public service journalism is the heart of our mission, earning The Seattle Times 11 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other news organization in the Northwest.
