Seattle Times real estate reporter Katherine Long is moving to a new beat — covering Amazon.com.

She was a researcher for Vox Media prior to joining the Times in 2019. Long was also an editorial intern at The Stranger.
Long has reported from Central Asia, Turkey and Cyprus, among other countries. She has also garnered awards such as a Fulbright Research Award, and she was a Marshall Scholarship finalist, as well.
