Description[Editor’s Note: The Seattle PostGlobe announced that it would cease publication on July 29 2011. Sally Deneen the site’s co-founder and news curator (and the journalist interviewed for the profile below) wrote about the decision here. This profile was originally published on June 3 2011.] When the Seattle Post-Intelligencer laid off nearly all its staff and went online-only in March of 2009 metro reporter Kery Murakami found himself suddenly out of a job. Saddled with an uncertain future and wide open schedule Murakami wasted little time in establishing the Seattle PostGlobe an online-only news source that launched just a month after the Post-Intelligencer shut down its presses.
