The Puget Sound Business Journal is a weekly American City Business Journals publication containing articles about business people, issues, and events in the greater Seattle, Washington area. The publication also publishes a technology news website named TechFlash. In 2010, the newspaper was a finalist for a Pulitzer prize in explanatory reporting for a series of stories about the foreclosure crises and the federal shutdown of Washington Mutual, which remains the biggest bank failure in U.S. history. The stories were reported by staff writers Kirsten Grind and Jeanne Lang Jones, and edited by Managing Editor Alwyn Scott. Grind took a leave of absence to write a book about the rise and fall of WaMu for Simon & Schuster. The book is expected to be published in early 2012. Since 2004, the newspaper has won national awards for general excellence, enterprise reporting and photography from the Society of Professional Journalists, the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, the National Association of Real Estate Editors, and American City Business Journals. The newspaper is based in the Norton Building, on the corner of Second Avenue and Columbia Street, in downtown Seattle.
